Thank you Wendy! I loved knitting Lady Bertram. This is the second of Wendy Johnson's shawl patterns that I have knit. One right after the other. Both were quick to knit from fingering wt. yarns, fun and easy. They'd be great gifts. I carried them to meetings with me and worked on them through my favorite TV shows.
I was excited when I saw that Wendy, the first knit blogger I ever read, was writing shawl patterns. I've admired her work for years. If you didn't read her blog back in her fair isle days, let me tell you that she was definitely the 'Queen of Steek'. Such courage. I could hardly wait to read her entries every morning.
Miss Bertram and her sister shawlette, Miss Woodhouse, will accompany me to the CT Sheep & Wool Festival this Saturday. She'll be representing Ball and Skein's Sophia, not on the website yet. All of the newer yarn bases will be offered at the shows only until the end of May. I think I need two of me. I've been going non-stop for a couple months now and there is still much to do. So much for that.. coffee, coffee, wine and listening to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (I never thought I would admit to enjoying it SO much), while I work. But honestly... it is an awful lot of fun!
