Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.
Please take time this weekend to remember what Memorial Day is about. It's a day when all of the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces are honored and remembered. It's the ultimate gift and sacrifice to die for your country and the beliefs of that Nation. Memorial Day is a great weekend to visit any National Memorials or exhibits; especially some of the decommissioned boats from WWII. If you're lucky there will be some retired guys or gals that served and if you are respectful and polite, sometimes they'll chat with you and you will learn more and appreciate more than you ever did before.
For FO Friday I have a finished object. The Shallows Cowl. I knit this cowl for a friend who, until recently, did not knit. She purchased the yarn and bought the pattern. She choose the Mini Mochi yarn. It was awful yarn for this project. Really light and airy-but also splitty. It's a single ply yarn that is close to really really thin roving. In grafting the ends together the yarn broke at least five times. I am so glad to be done.
It turned out to be really beautiful.
Here's Bessie modeling the cowl for me last night
The colors are most accurate in the top photo.
