Habs Win!

Shetland triangle finished!

Started: March 25, 2008
Finished: April 13, 2008
Pattern: Shetland Triangle, by Evelyn Clark. In Wrap Style.
Yarn: All Things Heather Handpainted Superwash Merino, won in a contest on the Yarn Harlot's blog
Needles: US 6/ 4.00mm

I was fortunate to show it to Stephanie herself last night at Third Place Books. She remembered the contest and the yarn, and said the shawl was lovely. (At least I think that's what she said, my memory is a little blurry). I had been talking to the people behind me in the line, a nice couple from Nanaimo with a very cute sleeping baby. They mentioned I was from Montreal and concluded I was probably a Habs fan. "Of course," I said. "And I'm missing the game to come here." (The seventh game of the quarterfinals, with the series tied 3-3!) To which Stephanie replied, as any true Torontonian would, "They'll lose. The Habs will lose"

Well, the Habs won. Beat the Boston Bruins 5-0. So there. And the Leafs didn't even make the playoffs, so who are you to talk... ;) (I have to say this, I'm from Montreal)

For the record, I'm glad I got to hear Stephanie talk. My mother was visiting, so I dragged her along. She knit and crocheted a lot when she was younger, but hasn't for a long time now. She was impressed with all the people knitting and the different types of projects being worked on, and has been talking of maybe taking up knitting again, maybe...

It is lovely! I can hardly believe you make such beautiful things. Not surprised, of course...just in awe!
