That is gorgeous Dennis. I know it will be appreciated. Now, how many of those chickens will survive Thanksgiving?? That is what I am having on Monday as none of us care for turkey. Hope your Thanksgiving dinner is successful and happy.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! They will all survive (7of them) I am partial to turkey and besides my girls are going to be good layers lol, no pun intended. I named them after my 6 sister-in-laws the 7th one belongs to a friends daughter.

I think I got the original off Ravelry, but made it much larger and added beads. It was off Ravelry "Ethereal Triangle" and it is free!!!!!!

What an absolutely beautiful shawl.

I also noticed your blocking board. Is that made of those tiles that you can buy for kid's play areas? Awesome idea!

chipsir's picture

yes it is, I got tired of using a bed lol

Extremely nice, Dennis. I'm sure she'll appreciate it - along with the chicken dinner.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Great work Dennis - I have to admit I share your love affair with does my wife! did know you have another month before Thanksgiving right?


chipsir's picture

Thanks but here in Canada we celebrated TG last weekend lol, and she just loved it.

RickMartin's picture

Hmmm...perhaps another good reason to be Canadian - you get to separate the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays a bit further...makes you actually want to see some of those family members again!
