A Little Help from my Friends






Remember my Forest Canopy Shawl and how I ran out of Emily at the last hurdle? Let me tell you there is nowhere quite like cyberspace and the on-line knitting community for rallying round and helping. Dee at Poshyarn didn't have quite an exact match for me - not that that didn't stop me buying anyway, but that's another story - and then my dear friend terri said "I have 25g of undyed Emily - why don't you see if Chrissy could dye it for you?"

Well, Chrissy could and Chrissy did and this is the result - a perfectly contrasting skein of Emily for the edge of my shawl. I am quite overwhelmed by this, and so chuffed, and would like to thank them both very much.

How wonderful of them! You must be so relieved to be able to finish this beautiful piece. I’ve tagged you for a ‘get to know you better’ game. The details are on my blog www.stitchintime71.blogspot.com, but please don’t feel obligated to participate. It’s on a voluntary basis only and I understand some people don’t like that sort of thing :)
