Lemony shawl

After some consistent pestering and convincing, Anita finally kindly agreed to knit a sweater for me. I have always liked her work and wanted to get one done by her. I am so glad that it is coming along so well. Thank you so much for the updates, Anita ๐Ÿ™‚
And that color is awesome isn’t? Am already excited to see the final product.
