Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Happy Birthday Mom!


I finished a project.  Finally!

This is the Traveling Woman Shawl.

The yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Seduction.  I dyed it at the last Knot Hysteria retreat.  If you look closely you can see a few beads.

I decided before Thanksgiving that I had a very special lady to knit something for.  My favorite mother-in-law loves my shawls!  People that have an appreciation for handmade things are a joy to knit for.

We had our Christmas party on Sunday.

Isn’t she a beautiful lady?  This is the lady that I told you about a couple of posts ago that went to Africa on a missions trip.  She’s as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.  I think she liked her shawl!

And…today is her 77th 39th birthday!  We’re blessed to call her Mom!
