Another shawl finish

As spring is far way, so it seems, I have been kitting like crazy to finish a shawl for my sister. I promised her to knit the New Beginning Shawl. Started March 8th and finished it today. For a change I thought I'd try to do an I cord bind off and I really like the way it turns out.
 Besides knitting I also have been stitching. The Plantation Sampler is now having a garden with some sheep, birds, a stork. I started to fill in the area with green, because when doing that at the end it is an awful job. Now I can add some green in between other little stitches. 
The fun of stitching a sampler is those little projects that are finished in a couple of hours. I love the feeling of having a finish!

Mooie manier van afkanten is dat, daar ga ik me ook eens in verdiepen!
Je borduurwerk is allerliefst.

Your shawls are all so beautiful. I really need to get back to one I started over a year ago. It needs more attention than I've been able to devote to it, but I must change that! I'm also loving watching your garden grow.
