1st July!

Well I made it! Tilia is done and blocked - just in case you were thinking I hadn't finished. It was cast off on Tuesday and blocked yesterday. I will put some pics up later once we are all ready to go. I am so pleased - it is light and airy and oh so pretty. Dare I say it but I think it is a much more summery shawl done in the 2ply baby alpaca, cashmere and silk. I love this yarn so much it is my favourite - I must collect a few more skeins! I don't think that it would have been finished without the speedy assistance of Amanda from the Natural Dye studio - I email her to ask about an undyed skein but was too late so I ordered the other colour that I thought would go and she was kind enough to send it out the same day despite being mad busy getting things ready for a show. This meant I could get started straight away and made the difference of being done by a comfortable margin rather than trying to finish in a mad dash.

All I can say is that I hope the prom goes as well as the shawl knitting did!

More later..........................................................

Ohhh! I want to see the pictures so badly! You'll be so proud of Lottie when she's all done up for her Prom. If you're like me you'll get all teary eyed and wonder where the last 16 years went so quickly. Good luck!!
