What I Knit – 6

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about my knitting, and I had a good reason for that : I had been working on a special gift for my aunt, something that easily took me 40+ hours to make. It’s a Valentine Shawl, and it’s filled with heart as you can see! 😀

My aunt Gabby had to have open-heart surgery last winter and the road to recovery has been a difficult one. On top of that, she has been showing signs of some memory trouble, which the doctors think are signs of Alzheimer (she still has some tests to run to verify the diagnostic).

I’m hoping this will bring her some support and comfort and love in a difficult time. My aunt has been giving all of her life – to my grandma, to her brothers and sisters, to my mom and I, to everyone. I thought it was time to turn things around, and for me to give her something special 🙂 She more than deserves it! I’ll be seeing her at the start of August and I can’t wait to give it to her!

    Nice to come across your blog today! Knitting, photography, books… there’s a lot to enjoy here. And I see you’re reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children? I just discovered that book, and I am intrigued… it’s on my to-read list. hmm…. I’m going to have to add you to my blogroll so I remember to come back and see what you think of it! 🙂
