It was something from Chicago. Then I recognized the name and was even more puzzled.
Apparently, Rue and Rachel conspired to surprise me with a wedding gift.
A handmade shawl, to be exact.
Not only did they share knitting duties on this gorgeous shawl, but the yarn is handspun, by Rue.
I wish I could really show you the depth of this color, but the yarn is a gray with subtle flecks of blue, green, pink.
And soft. So soft.
The sneaky girls perused my ravelry favorites and saw that I enjoyed the Citron shawl, but I haven't knitted the pattern.
I love this shawl, because it was knit with love and hope.
I hope the wedding venue is chilly enough that I can wear this that day, and remember how each stitch was knit by my friends, Rachel and Rue.
Thank you both. You are incredible!
As soon as I can, I'll share a picture of me wearing it.
Hopefully, it will be from the wedding, which is less than three. weeks. away!
