A Shawl in Four Evenings....


Compared to the last shawl I knitted, this one was a dream. Completed in four evenings knitted on sensible 3.5 needles rather than glorified cocktail sticks, using a wonderful dappled green yarn from Fyberspates. That's all I know about the yarn - it was in the bumper bargain bag I bought at the Unravel show, so had no label on it other than 'Fyberspates'. It is soft, has a slight fuzz about it, and is definitely of a sheepy origin judging by the distinctive warm scent of it before washing.


The pattern, although it looks complicated, was a succession of soothing repeats which grew quickly and made for easy corrections.

This will be in my Etsy shop shortly.

yeah right..... it would have taken me years to have done this, then a few more to try and pick up dropped stitches. It's a beautiful shawl.... HOW DO YOU DO THAT ?
