Z's shawl....


This is one of those skeins- the Socks That Rock lightweight. The colors are sweet and very gentle. Here it is modeled by my elder daughter, but the little one has laid claim to it. For whatever reason, she calls it her own. I am almost starting to relax enough about my paranoia of them having things around their neck, that I just might be able to let her wear it once in a while. She can have it, but I prefer her stuffed cat wear it.




I love working with this yarn- it's got a great texture!



As you can see in this pic, it's too bulky to wear as a neck wrap, but it seems too small to use as a shawl. I wish I would have gotten two skeins for this one. Who knew? And it's all just part of the great experiment to find a little neck wrap that is NOT a dickie!




Specs:
Yarn: Socks that Rock Lightweight- colorway Goody Goody
Pattern: Multnomah
Needles: size 6 knitpicks circs

P.S. For you there, family member who would like a shawl of some kind- here's what you have to do. Go to this website: Webs, or this one- STR and get a skein or two for you and a skein or two for me and there you go! You have to let me know which pattern you like best- there are a few more in the works : )
