My first FO of the new year. Finally. The Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl. When I first saw this project on Wendy's blog and learned that it only takes one skein of Mountain Colors Weaver's Wool Quarters (350 yds.) -- well, of course I had a few of those in my stash! It's a very simple lace pattern, so it's a good project for beginning lace knitters. I loved it because it's a great travel project and a quick knit for gifts. This one, however is for me-me-me. The colorway is Alpine.
I used a US 7 needle and had enough yarn to knit a couple of extra rows of the scalloped border pattern. This project could actually be done in a good day of knitting. I really enjoyed it and have the next one planned for my mom.
Well, for the 7th straight week, it's snowing and minus 5 degrees here in the Mile High City. BRRRR! Great knitting weather -- Happy Friday to you!
OOOHHH and I almost forgot, it's Groundhog Day! Did Phil see his shadow?
