Another Shawl for Charity

I love making shawls.  They have no specified size and don't require sleeves to be inserted into impossibly smaller or larger holes.  In general they let you choose any kind of yarn and any hook as long as you like the effect.  They are the perfect item for using up yarn and that usually results in beautiful but useful items.  Here is one I just finished.  I am already hard at work on another one.  I am gradually reducing my yarn closet and can now see the back wall.  Yea!
Yarn is Lion Brand's DK Bamboo Cotton in Snapdragon

Pattern is Have A Heart Designed by Joyce Nordstrom at Red Heart

Below is a picture of the latest garden asset.  Shaunti thinks its her garden and we don't tell her otherwise but we call it Ichabod's Garden.  Some of you will recall the movie with Johnny Depp while others may recall the story about the headless horseman.  The crane was just too beautiful for us not to add to our yard.  Then we had to have plants to surround the feet and then, and then, well you get the picture.  We think we are finished planting for now.  All are growing nicely
