Amazing Lace Challenge #1

Pink and pretty roses, a shawl pattern of heart-motif lace, the loveliest Addi Natura needles, and delicate laceweight merino in an almost but not-quite-vanilla. These are the makings of a very special shawl, a most important teammate. Ten months ago, a very special man (the Man from My Past Present & Future, or MFMPPF) returned to my life. We'd loved each other at a distance for over two decades, but had chosen to do the right thing and stay with relationships we'd established before we met each other. Now, both of us free, we are finding out whether or not we were truly meant to be. More and more, we think we are. And so this summer, amidst other commitments, the shawl he (and my readers of this blog!) chose last fall, The Catharina from Knitter's Best Shawls & Scarves, will finally go on the needles.

I'm a bit too old for white, but this lovely creamy ivory may be just the right touch to grace my shoulders for a very special, there's been no date set yet, nor have I new jewelry, so I have time. Perhaps all summer and into the fall. I'll keep you posted as I go. What do you think? A sweet choice for a Second Chance and for The Amazing Lace, no?

A very special choice and one I know you've thought long and hard about. May every stitch you take form a blessing for the future for you and MFMPPF. {{HUGS}}

My ex-stepmom recently reconnected with her junior high beau, the first boy she ever kissed, and they are on a similar path in their late 60s...

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
