Happy Birthday Granny

Today has been a day of reflection, I guess you could say, for lack of a better word. It’s been a day that I would call Granny every single year for as long as I can remember…but today she’s not there to answer the phone for me to tell her how much I love her and miss her…

She would have been 88 years old today, but unfortunately she didn't make it to this mini-milestone, but she was with us for over 87, and almost 40 years in my life.
I do have one FO to show...I started it on December 29th and bound off last night, January 11th! I think that it's the fastest I have ever finished something, but I could be mistaken. I was excited to have it completed though, since it's a gift for my mom...I hope she likes it.
The pattern is Alix's Prayer Shawl and I used 2 skeins of Blue Moon Socks That Rock Mediumweight that I got at Maryland Sheep & Wool in May. I love the way that it came out. It's my first shawl and my first lace, other than on some socks or a scarf.

I've been rav-stalking your shawls. Go, girl! It's bittersweet, isn't it? You had all those great times with Granny, so you miss her even more...

I'm sorry you no longer have your grandmother but I hope you have lots of nice memories. I only knew one grandparent and she died when I was 12. The other grandmother and both grandfathers died before I was born. I feel a little left out when other people relate all their pleasant grandparent memories. I have so few.
