...I did finish the moebius shawl in time to wear at my sister's reception! I finished the knitting shortly after arriving in Texas last week. The rectangle measured 16"x47".Then I twisted it and seamed one short end to the end of one long side to get the moebius effect with a longer "V" back.
The wedding was held in my folks' little church in Hereford, which was much too small to accommodate the reception. For that we moved down the street to the Community Center, which was well air-conditioned or I would have been too warm to don mohair. I wore it for awhile, and my new brother-in-law's Aunt Bonnie, a fellow knitter I was delighted to meet, took these photos on her cell phone:
For more wedding photos, you'll have to wait until I get home and download my camera (we're in the airport waiting to board as I type). You may have to wait awhile, though. Tomorrow will be crazy, because after a busy morning playing catch-up and going to the homeschooling cooperative in the afternoon, I'm driving to Creswell to pick up a very special ram to meet my three adult ewes!
That's the long-distance report from . . .
