I have completed Evelyn Clark's Estonian Garden Wrap. The wonderful recipeint lives in a warm climate so I made it using cotton rather than the customary wool. It has a luxurious drape and looks very stunning, if I may say so myself.

However, since the color is not specifically one that she requested, I am hoping that she will not be disappointed. I will be shopping around for a few more surprises to accompany it. So, if you get a package in the mail in about one week..... it might be containing this wrap! I am wishing that you will cherish it, and accept it in the spirit in which it was created.

Pattern: Evelyn Clark's Estonian Garden Wrap
Yarn: Rowan's Cotton Glace
Color: Butter
Yardage: 875 (7 skeins)

This shawl is drop-dead gorgeous! I know that for a fact, since I helped Dorene block it. It knocked me out then, and it knocks me out even more that it's off the dressing wires! This is truly an heirloom. Brava, Mozart. It's an aria!

I am so hoping this is for me.....I am one of those who live in a warm climate, and the color is not one I'd request... so, so??? I love it and would enjoy it every day!!!

What wonderful work you do, Dorene. Many many compliments.

Aw shucks.....

I was just checking in for the day and I am AMAZED with how many of you were kind enough to leave a comment. I am deeply touched by your kind words and encouragement.

I spent many, many hours knitting it and was debating wether or not to send it to my pal. But, after "chatting" with her, I have come to realize that she is one remarkable lady and truly deserves this. I am just hoping that she will really, really like it and will accept it in the spirit in which it was created.

Thanks again....
