Now the SIP. It's a shawl, just starting out, with enormous help from the custom stitch markers my daughter made for me, never mind the yarn she gifted me to knit it with! Eventually, it will have a forest green border on it. More pics to come soon...

Please send a message to my daughter, KnavyKnitter on Ravelry, for details on the gorgeous stitch markers she made!
