My Shalom

Thanks to a photo shoot with my husband, I can show off my latest knit...for me!  I very rarely make things for myself but I've had my eye on this since before all my Christmas knitting.  Made with only 1 skein of Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool for $15!  That's an incredible price for a sweater.

After a little shaping around the armholes, it fits perfect.  I am very happy with this little cardigan of mine, and somehow I think the name is significant for me in this season...Shalom...  I know it's just a sweater and the designer might have just picked a name, but as I look to this next season, peace just seems to be the word that rolls off my tongue.

Yes, that is going to be my word for 2010...shalom...peace.  As I wear this little knit, it will be a little reminder to look to God and seek His peace in my life, in my family.  This cardigan even hugged my body as I brought in the New Year.  Yes, it must be significant.  Ok, now I'm just getting cheesy...
