Found it !!!!

Back in September I blogged about a wedding ring shawl I’d made. Unfortunately I couldn’t provide any photos as the shawl had been misplaced somewhere in the loft.

I’m very pleased (and mightily relieved....) to say that it’s been found safe and well. It was, for some strange reason, in a suitcase with our summer clothes.

We only stumbled upon it by accident. Mr Gertie had gone into the loft to bring down the case (so we could see if we needed any new clothes for our cruise), and what did we find among the vest tops and shorts, the shawl.

So, a little later than planned, here's my wedding ring shawl.






And to prove that it 'does what it says on the tin'....


Thank you Mr Gertie for the use of your wedding ring (mine being a size I was just a bit too small to use).


Hope it was worth the wait.....

Have a great week.

Gertie xx

  8. That's a beautiful shawl. My mum knitted herself a couple of tops using 1ply wool and I always admired them, they were so soft and delicate looking, your lovely shawl reminds me of them :)
