It is so nice, I'm going to cry....


(Sorry for the quality of the pictures, I'll try to take better ones later)

I just received Kristin's package today and what she made is so beautiful that I want to cry right now...

She designed and knitted the most beautiful lace shawl -- the color is a variegated purple, exactly a color I would have picked for myself. I'm just in awe of her skills and talent! She included the yarn used and a skein of coordinated Rowan Kidsilk spray (I love the Rowan kidsilk collection!), as well as stitch markers and a beautiful shawl pin.

This is the *best* gift I have ever received (DH is next to me and nodding in approval) and I am just overwhelmed by Kristin's attention. I can't imagine the time and effort that went into all of this. Kristin, you are a wonderful artist and person :)

A very grateful and happy Minh

PS: I promise to become a better knitter and to learn to knit lace so that I can try Kristin's patterns with the yarn she sent.
