Knitting class thank yous

thank you cards for Annie and Kaori
My hat is drying on a dinner bowl after being blocked
I took two knitting classes in March -- one was for a hat where I learned to do color work. I think I chose the wrong yarn since a lot of the detail seems to have sunk into the threads of the blue, but I now know how to do it if/when I make another hat.  Kaori was very patient and shared stories of her family in Tokyo and how they were dealing with the disasters there.

The second class was for a top down sweater and poor Annie said she could help any afternoon I wanted to come in at 1 --- so my car now knows the way to Cocoa without using Garmin at all!
 But I am well on the way with my personally fitted top down sweater.

I made thank you cards for both instructors.

Flower soft

Flower soft seems perfect for a sympathy card.  A very dear friend has lost several people who were very close to her heart, and it is so hard to make a card that will in any way take away the pain.  But when I think of making cards, and sending them, what better reason than to send a hug in an envelope. Hope she likes this card, after all, SHE sent me the gorgeous blue flower soft!

The colors were still out on my table from these cards using the Zindorf technique ...
