WIP-Wednesday


I am working on a shawl for myself for the fall, finnally something for me.  The pattern is really easy and gives you a little open work for interest and fun. This is a great take along, you don't have to look at any charts or patterns, its really that easy.


 The Pattern  Aunt Barb's Simple Shawl is on Ravelry.
Lila's Photo of Finished Shawl

The yarn I used is Starry Night by Red Heart Boutique the Eclipse line.  It's not as soft as I would like it but the colors worked with  my cold weather clothes.  Its hard to tell from the photo but the green isn't so bright and there is a stripe of turqoise and brown that doesn't show up very well.

Thank you Marie, I am looking forward to it in the fall.

And it feels so good to make something for myself.

Easy, hmm, I'd like to believe that, but it doesn't look easy. I started knitting about seven years ago when I decided I wanted my fourth graders to learn how to knit. Figured I'd better get it down first. Here I am, still knitting scarves. Your shawl is looking beautiful!
