Homeward Bound

We had a few souvenirs to bring home from South Carolina to Mississippi... yarn... "gemstones"... peaches... a bazillion pictures and memories... and a new friend.   Meet Momma J.

Momma J was waiting for us in mom's guestroom.  Mom wrote about her here.  Momma J apparently heard a call to lead a new flock in Mississippi, so she's heading home with us.

She is already shepherding me through the start of my Kudzu Shawlette.  I love this pattern, even though the cast on was a whopping 253 stitches.  The yarn, Twilley's Freedom Gorgeous DK, is a little splitty, but that's generally not a problem.  I can tell it will live up to it's name, giving this shawlette/scarf a gorgeous drape.

Welcome home, Momma J!
