Because she needs a hug and this is the best way I can send one.
Purple is her favorite color.
Honestly, the yarn was extra from Mom's Triqueta Cape that I made her for her Birthday.
The original yarn for that cape was a gray Llama and silk blend but I changed what I wanted to make and so had to trade the yarn and increase the quantity. I increased it a bit too much and had a bunch leftover. Since Dena loves purple, I had offered her the yarn. She loved this pattern, so here is her Semele - made with love, by me. It was a delight to knit but make no mistake, this is substantial - about 8 feet long, in fact.
Wrap yourself in a hug from me Dena - and know that I love you.

This was half the kit from the Miss Bab's Travel Tour club for December.
The other half is mittens which I haven't knit yet.
This was super quick - took me four evenings and wouldn't have taken that long if I hadn't gotten the creeping crud. It was also a terrific fun knit.
I thought it was going to be mine, but someone claimed it before I could even take photos . . .
I probably wouldn't have worn it anyway -
I tend not to do scarves, hats or even coats if I can avoid it.
Next - mittens!

This has been on the needles since the beginning of November due to issues beyond my control.
I think it turned into an absolutely lovely shawl.
My photography didn't come close to capturing the gorgeousness that is this color of yarn, but trust me it is absolutely fantastic. I can't remember the name of the colorway either, so can't get more. I'm hoping the yarn company will tell me what they sent me when they get the shawl back.
The pattern is Theodosia and the yarn is Cephalopod Yarn's Skinny Bugga - which is delightful to knit (has some cashmere content and you can feel it).

I know I still owe pics of Dena's present . . . It has been too cold to take them and tomorrow it is supposed to rain, but I will try for Sunday.
