A little before Christmas I decided to make a shawl. I've been wanting to for awhile now, but never found something I thought was easy enough for my skill level.(I've been knitting for about 3 years now, but I am still very much a beginner)
Well, a dear old blog friend(perhaps some of you remember Jewel, at Eyes of Wonder) had posted a pattern to a shawl that her and her daughter made. Well, I LOVED it. Simple and pretty:-) So that is the one I decided to do.
And thanks to my sweet parents(for my birthday), I got some yarn that I hope will make a lovely shawl. My Mom insists the color and yarn are perfect. I haven't decided yet if I like the yarn..it is kind of a boucle yarn and it blurs the stitches a bit. However, I may find that I like it very much..the color certainly is nice. It is kind of a misty color, with blues and browns in it.
Here is my current progress on it. Not much I know, but for a lady with 3 kids(one being a baby) well, I'd say I'm doing okay:-)
I'm using circular needles..size 7 or 9. Can't remember right now. The pattern is really quite simple and I enjoy it.
Here is a close up of the edge. I like that there is a lacey look but that it is easy to get. I don't really have to remember a bunch of difficult stitch patterns.
Well, I am hoping to get back to my knitting sometime tonight. I keep getting stalled when Liam decides he isn't going to sleep well. Well, at least it should be done by next winter:-p
Hope you all are having a splendid day!
