I'm still on my blocking kick so I pulled out Highland Fling which I knit in March of this year for a friend of mine. It's knit in Cascade Eco Alpaca and was lovely to knit with. I knit this while I traveled to England to visit my Mum and Dad and it was a easy knit for traveling although the fuzzies from the alpaca flew around the cabin on the plane and hopefully didn't bother anyone.
It's soft and squishy and this is one of those gifts you knit that you're half tempted to keep for yourself, but this was knit while Sandy was ill and a lot of thoughts and prayers were put into this shawl for her, so it belongs 100% to her. Hopefully she'll feel the good wishes as she wears it. Knowing Sandy she'll appreciate every bit of it.
