She's a Traveling Woman

Lisa and Her Traveling Woman Shawl

My friend Lisa is awesome. When she wants to do something, instead of talking about it, she does it.

She started a website, Catholicmom.com. Then came a podcast, speaking at conferences, writing for other blogs, etc. etc. etc.

Now she wrote a book. Cool huh? Look here. She will be off circling the country soon on a whirlwind of speaking engagements and book signings, as our newest celebrity.

Her only fault? She's allergic to wool. I know, not really her fault, but I had to find some imperfection. Anyway, she is the lucky winner of shawl #3 of my 10 shawls in 2010, aptly named "Traveling Woman".


This little shawlette is made from Berroco Comfort sock yarn, which has no wool in it for Lisa and her sensitivity, but is still soft and was lovely to work with. The pattern is from Liz Abinante, a nice gal I was fortunate to meet at Stitches last month.



Happy traveling Lisa!

Cindy - my shawl is the perfect traveling companion - she fits just about every occasion, and reminds me of the precious friend who created her every time I wear her! Thanks for the care and friendship that went into every stitch!!
