Thank you for this pattern and the story. I printed out the pattern last night and am hoping to by the yarn today to start for a friend that was just diagnosed with breast cancer. I am glad you shared that Anisah means "good friend". It is the perfect fitting. We've been in the same church for eons and our daughters are good friends. I asked her daughter if she would enjoy something likes this and her response was "You are so great! That is beautiful and I think she would really like something like this." So off I go to get yarn in one of her favorite colors and get started. My poncho can wait to be finished. Christmas knitting is done so this is priority. Your timing of putting out this new design was perfect and having a shawl in worsted weight will go faster than fingering which I typically do. Thank you!!! Kay

I wasn't too bad and I'm sure you weren't either - my temper was more volatile and rebellious doesn't begin to describe me. Luckily I took it out with the arts, nothing bad. Of course I married at 18 and led that poor sweet man crazy. The question I found we always have to ask.........would you do the same thing again in the same circumstances. If we're honest with ourselves, most times we would. The funny part is that when you get older, younger people seem to think you were never, ever young!! As my doctor tells me.........I want you to wear out, not rust out!

Wow what a beautiful work of art. I just purchased your pattern and took advantage of your very gernerous offer you have going on at Ravelery with the buy one get one free deal. So I picked another pattern that is suitable for my sister. I will put these on hold till the new year when I can take the time to find the perfect yarn choice and colours and than knit away on a new challenge and hopefully have two Birthday presents done . Thanks Dee and I know your friend is one lucky lady. Merry Christmas

Oh, I do so love that color! And all the Texture! Anisah looks like something you could really just wrap up in and enjoy a good cuddle. Jen is a lucky friend, indeed.
This has been added to my immediate to-do list! Thank you, Dee, for yet another stunning pattern!!
