Wingspan - Part 1

Number 5 on my Ten Things For Summer was to knit a shawl. This isn't it! I am still planning to knit a lace shawl, just to prove to myself that I can do it.

However, I was looking for patterns suitable for my beginners, and I thought this one might appeal to the Moms. Just to make sure it was doable, I had to make one myself.

I found some yarn in my sock yarn bin, that I thought would do the job. The yarn is not my usual colour palette but I think it followed me home from a sale bin.

I am using 3.75 mm needles, since the pattern didn't specify a guage, but I think it is a bit loose, so I was not going to have enough yarn. I was trying to be very frugal and shop my stash, but I had nothing that would go with this yarn, so, off to the store.

I wasn't sure the green was exactly right, but it looks pretty good in the picture, so I guess it will be fine.

This is not my colours, so I wonder who will end up with it. I am sure it will find a home.


  1. Great pattern, and in bright colours would be startling/stunning, your muted shades go so well together. I like it. Cheers from Jean.

  2. Very pretty! I like your choice of colours.
