Another ISE
I joined the International Scarf Exchange 5. This will be my fourth round in this particular exchange. Each time, I have been blessed with the most fabulous partners, both up and downstream.

I have read the questionnaire of the pal that I am to spoil. She outlined the colors, type and style that she would love. Being the sneak that I am, my introduction to her I told her that I had only been knitting for about 6 months and I am just now learning how to purl. I told her that I love the beautiful selection of yarns that are available at my local Wal-mart. Isn't she just crazy about Lion Brand too? (Yes, I will be going straight to hell for all the lies that I tell, but heck.... I'll know everyone there!) I know that she would love a lace shawl, but with all the constraints upon my time, I really doubt if I will have the time to devote to it. I do have one already done, it's the Estonian Garden Shawl that I made using GGH Capri (a cotton/tencel blend) in a salmon color. I just don't know if it would be her first choice when it comes to the color.
The shawl is done, sitting in a drawer, all folded up and waiting to be loved and cherished. Would it be so tacky to send a shawl that I had already made?

I have heard from the person that is to spoil me. She sent an email asking a few questions, to try and get to know me more. I sent her a loooooong rendition, that just might have been a little TMI. Well, she asked for it! lol. I just hope that she uses this exchange as a change to try new and different techniques and yarns.... but most of all.... to just have fun!

The recipient should love the shawl! It is lovely and definitely NOT Lion Brand. How evil of you. If she doesn't love the color, maybe she can over dye it.

Brilliant! Over-dye it!
