Snail Mail Swap with Mousy Brown

I was so very excited to be part of Mousy Brown’s Snail Mail Swap and so now I can show you what I was working on for the last few months. We decided to make something to wear and I chose this shawl to make for her. It reminded me of Cornwall and as she grew up there and we went on holiday there when I was a girl living in England I wanted to capture those memories for both of us. The colour more closely matches up to this photo. I had such a great time working on this shawl and it was the first complicated pattern I ever used. I am so pleased with how it turned out, and I think Emily is as well. In return, Emily sent me the most delicious mittens. They are adorned in the sweetest embroidery and are toasty warm, I can’t wait for a day chilly enough to wear them. This little scarf is probably the softest thing you will ever feel, made out of her hand dyed angora yarn. It’s absolutely scrumptious and I love them both. Emily, thank you so much for the treats, I will treasure them. It was so much fun participating in this swap, thanks Mousy Brown for coming up with such a great idea.
