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.
