Hi all! :waving:

I've missed you! I've been MIA for awhile now. I just finished my first year of teaching, and I also just completed a six-month alternative education certification program.

Whew!

:passedout:

I didn't have much time to knit, but I did manage to crank out the Chinook Lace Shawl, a kit I purchased from Knit Picks.

The shawl was an easy knit, and I just love the yarn included in the kit. It blocked nicely, with the fibers opening up to provide a beautiful drape. The shawl is rather large, but that's really what drew my attention to the shawl. I've always wanted something I could snuggle into.

This kit comes in a green/blue/purple colorway as well.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my project!

Thanks for all of the kind words, all!

I thought I would share one more picture of the shawl. I just returned home from a seven-night Alaskan cruise. I took the shawl with me, and it came in handy, let me tell you! The weather was much, much colder than what I'm used to in Florida.

I wore the shawl the day we saw Hubbard Glacier. My kids have affectionately nicknamed it "The Cape," because it's so large. They had begged me to "flap" it the entire trip, so I finally gave in...right in front of the glacier...as if I were an eagle.

:teehee:

Once again, thanks for your kind words. It's so nice to know that I can come back after an extended absence and find everyone just as welcoming as ever.

:hug:

Actually, it's very eagle like in the color way you chose.

After seeing yours, I ordered the green-blue-purple version, can't wait to get started on it. My DH had given me a GC last Christmas, and with the sale, my payment is $1.40, can't beat that.

Thank you for the motivation.

Wow! I am so glad that my shawl inspired you! You got a great deal, and you're going to have a beautiful shawl to show for it! I can't wait to see yours!!
