The only thing left is to wear it. I don’t know that I could have created a more authentic Civil War sontag than this.
AWESOME!!!! Not only cool, but well done as well!
Super! I just have to buy sheep, shear, and comb and I'll be doing the whole deal too...I hope they like a patio!Courtney
That is so awesome Christine! perfect in every way!!
Really beautiful and what pride it must make you feel to do this and do it well!Di
Beautiful! I am so inspired!!kim
Great job, Christine! Wear it with pride! Sorry we couldn't quite connect this week-end.
Loved the step-by-step with photos! So many times when I'm knitting people ask "Is that from your sheep?" Unfortunately, I have done much of that yet, but hope to in the future.
Love the pictures of the process and your finished shawl is gorgeous. Looks very authentic. I'm so into the Jane Eyre shawl right now...I've started the second one and haven't even finished the first one yet!!
I bow to you!
Wow! Absolutely love it!
NEXT TIME YOU GET BACK TO "GOD'S COUNTRY" I'LL TRADE YOU SHEEP SHEARS FOR THE SHAWL!!!!!!!!LOVE YA JUST ME
Those sheep shears better be made of gold, Aunt Martha! Cause by my calculations this shawl is worth a small fortune. LOL
They have been hanging in the hallway for 40yrs, there are some things you just can't put a price on, like your children!!!!!!!Wouldn't take a million for my 3boys but I wouldn't give a dime for another one!!!!LOVE YAJUST ME
Wow . I am so in awe of your talent and your patience.In a world where everything is RIGHT NOW, you demonstrated the the benefit of hard work over time. What a treasure you created.
You forgot one step - LOVE IT!!!!!!!
Double "Like". As an avid yarnie - I'm more of a goat person myself, but I'm working up the courage to get into yarn farming. Maybe with angora goats? I'm also trying to research techniques on creating soap the old fashioned way. . . as in cast iron pot over a fire. I'm just fascinated by the old crafts. I shall have to meet you someday as I hear you're around Putnam Co.(?) and I'm just over in Clay.
