Few things are impossible to diligence and skill.
Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.

[Samuel Johnson]

Ellen's Shawl

My daughter, Ellen, hand spun two and a half pounds of Marbled Moorit (Icelandic-Merino-Alpaca blend) roving that she purchased from Tongue River Farm. Then she knit this poncho on US size 9 needles. Pictured here with her son, Owain, Ellen is not only diligent and skillful, she also gives the word perseverence a whole new meaning. I’m proud of you, Ellen.

Love,
Mama
