The 'Red Hat' Shawl

I know you're all waiting with bated breath to see the finished gourd tonight, right? (Hey, a girl can dream...) Well, it isn't quite done yet. I spent my work time today popping over to my folks' place instead. Mom was making home made corned beef for sandwiches, and wanted to experiment on me. I'm not about to pass up her cooking!

So, while I was there, I got her to model a shawl for me. I usually use my daughter as a model, but this particular shawl is aimed at the 'Red Hat' ladies, and she is just a wee bit young still. So, here are shots of my Mom being a good sport.

You all missed some good food!


  1. Lovely shawl and delightful model!! :0)

  2. Thank you. I'm pretty lucky in my family. :)

  3. Great shawl and very happy model!

  4. Thanks, bspinner. Mom was a good sport about the whole thing. I left her with copies of the pictures, and she's sent them on to my Aunt to show off. :)
