A Delightful Surprise

Jimmie the blogger, like me, is a retired teacher. Unlike me, he knits, for I may be a nitwit, but I am not a knitter.

One day, he noticed that Sue can be a bit of a flamboyant dresser in her capes, scarves and so on. So, he emailed to tell me that he had decided to send his current project to Sue.

Wishing it to be a complete surprise, I didn't tell her about it. And lo, in the fullness of time, it didst come to our mailbox, and, behold, it was a complete surprise. What a delight!

It took about a week for us to get around to taking some pictures, and then they had to be done right away when the mood strucketh m'lady. So, I did the best I could by catching the fading light by the bedroom window.



Sue posted about it here, and this is where you can find Jimmie.

Glad you are enjoying the shawl, Sue. It is a compliment to my work to see it on such a lovely lady.
By the way, I forgot to mention that it is totally washable, in cool water, and I would recommend laying flat to dry, however, it can be dried in dryer on low setting.
Have a great Sunday.

JE does do lovely work and it looks beautiful on Sue. I will say if you do wash and dry in your machines that you wash & dry by itself to avoid "fuzz" from other clothes.
