Knit One, and an Anniversary Coming Up!

I saw a really cool looking shawl, and being cheap, uh, frugal, decided I could figure out the pattern myself, saving the princely sum of 7.95!  We'll see how successful it is, but so far so good... with, of course, modifications to make it mine.  I will post pics of the inspiration and the finished product later. 
I am fast approaching my 400th post!  I am thinking of an appropriate celebratory action... but in the meantime, I am working on a little wallhanging.  It was started after my daughter was out of the hospital, and I needed to start working through the feelings I had.  It is still a work in progress, but here is a teaser... I am very much enjoying the process of stitching my feelings onto this fabric.  It is amazing to me how much of the negative it drains away and lets me concentrate on the positive.  Working with my hands has always been therapeutic, though I didn't realize it at the time, but now, it has become a necessity.  If that is my addiction, so be it.  It is a fairly innocuous one, I suppose.  At least my wife whispering husband knows where I am, nights!

Amazing as usual, with great therapy included. The magic with shawl will be yet another sight to behold. Fantastic work!
