Thread Name: A Very Special Shawl
Subject: RE: A Very Special MMario Shawl
MMario is here at our house today with the shawl. A few packaging details and it will be underway.

Heather, it's too lovely to capture in a picture. This means that for people to see what they have given you, they will have to see it worn.... I had thought of it as a representation TO you, of Mudcat's care for its own, but that's a major mis-estimation. YOU will be that representative, wearing it.... you see, all the love Rick gave us here is knit right back into it and aimed your way.

So this also means that to let people see what they have given you, you're going to have to come to lots of Mudcat events and be patient when hands can't help but reach to touch it and begin getting to know a woman in such a shawl. It's irresistably, heartbreakingly lovely... the colors and textures gleam.... it's deep in tone and shot through with light, at the same time.

And you will be holding it, very soon.
