Default Faraway, So close...

February 9th marks one year since my grandpa George passed. It still feels like yesterday. I have a feeling it will feel this way for a long time to come. He is my biggest role model and example of a real man I've had in my life.

Upon his passing, I decided I wanted to make a "Faraway, So Close" shawl.
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...raway-so-close

It's a very personal project and one of the few things I've ever made myself.

My grandpa that passed last year and his wife, my grandma Fay, that passed back in 1998. When I think of him, this is the image in my head most of the time. He made the leather vest and usually wore matching bracers he also made, to keep the wrists of his shirt from getting tattered on his wheelchair.

My shawl! I expected it to take weeks or months to complete. It took me a week and 5 days. I hit a zone and finished it today. I still don't know how I did it. Especially with school and homeschooling the girls and four kids. lol.
To gauge size, it's about 5' across.

the pics on fb are optimal resolution for looking fine on there. if you click on the flicr pics, you should be able to view it bigger. the big files are huge. lol.
~~~~~~~
actually, i'm uploading one in a bigger size. i forgot i uploaded the smaller res to flikr instead of the bigger ones. lol

I just saw it on Rav. It's beautiful!

Btw, my grandfather (who we called Poppy) was also George. He passed away on my birthday in 2012.

The shawl is beautiful and so is the sentiment that went into it.

It won't let me see it bigger the way I want it, it keeps going to a slideshow.
