Lacy Loveliness

Last week I spotted this post on Grandma CoCo's site and hurried to get my hand up.  I figured it would get snapped up before my email reached its destination, but the timing was right.  The mailman dropped this in our box this morning.
The shawl is more beautiful in person than in the photograph, the merino wool is soooo soft and the work is exquisite. Tiny white beads add such a delicate touch to the edging. In my early days of knitting when I could do everything (or thought I could! :)) I used to relish the challenge of cables and fine wool...but I don't recall anything ever turning out this lovely. Now my hands are too clumsy to manipulate knitting needles so my cable days are over.    I'm pretty chuffed to have this, Cheryl! Grandma CoCo offers such goodies for sale on her site from time to time to support a local humane society. Keep watching - you might be lucky enough to score next.
