I had found near my sister's house in Paris a small shop selling half price luxury yarns and thus I bought 8 yarns of a fine wool mixed with cashmere and silk. Coming back home I started quickly to use it to knit a shawl. I had no pattern, just seen on a lady wearing it in France. I regretted I did not think of taking a picture... it would have helped me a lot. But I must have photographed it mentally quite well as I believe that the finished result is very similar to the original.
Yesterday my daughter with her baby M. came for a visit, just as I was finishing putting the 146 fringes.
I thought I could keep this shawl for myself for once, but I am not sure if this will be possible. To understand, you just have to see how she took it and wrapped herself inside together with her baby!
I baked a French Bourdaloue Tart : poached pears on an almond cream. We had it with a cup of tea in the afternoon and I must say it was delicious.
In other words, we had a wonderful day!
