PLEASE IGNORE THE BEACH SHEET! BUT NOTICE THE LOVELY ALPACA SILK.....BLOCKING!!!!! I finally cast off the shawl and it measures 24"x58", I had hoped for 60" but was fearful it would be only 46". Thank the L-rd for blocking and stretching! If this doesn't say "I love my grandpaw" i dont know what will. but that is me...acts of service girl ( 5 languages of love). so here is the first completed holiday present, now only 15 more to finish!
