This finished object was a Christmas present to my Nonna, who was here on vacation from her home in Italy. She loved it so much that when she opened the box, she started crying!  Undecided While I don't like making my Grandma cry, I did enjoy the fact that she liked the gift...

Pattern: Flower Basket Shawl
Yarn: KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud in color "moss"
Needles: KnitPicks size 2 circs (which are awesome, by the way! Unfortunately, my Nonna took those with her when she left, so I'll have to get some more)

Pics: While blocking on an extra thick blanket on my messy floor:

And one in use shot:


Sorry the pics aren't the greatest- my camera batteries died, and the shawl is all the way across the ocean now.

So pretty!  I'm so glad your grandma loved it.  You did such a great job on it.

Stunning! It's no wonder that your grandma was so overwhelmed. Smiley

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

This is such a wonderful thing... it looks like an Italian grandmother shawl... so wonderful that you can do for your grandmother what so many grandmother's have done for their grandchildren.  It's a beautiful shawl and a beautiful gift!

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.
