The Alderwood Quilts blog is for customers, friends and quilt enthusiasts. . Sue and her husband also own run a small lavender farm along with the quilt shop. You'll see lavender and other gardening topics, as well as knitting, recipes, photos of kids and pets.. and whatever else comes to mind.
My niece, Melanie, knitted this prayer shawl. She gave it to a friend as a Christmas gift. It's either a shawl or a blanket- whichever you want it to be. The designer created it from an old doily pattern. It can be found on the Brooklyn Tweed blog. I believe it's a free pattern.
Mel said she doesn't generally block her knitting but it wasn't optional with this project. It was all bunchy and ripply. Blocking really did the trick! It looks fantastic, Mel!
