I got this shawl finished yesterday evening and was able to block it last night and it was dry when I woke up this morning so I ran it down to my friend. She was pleased with the result and that made me very happy ;).
It’s an easy pattern to knit even tho’ it looks complicated. Once I have the projects on my plate finished, I will try to find a nice heavy lace weight to fingerling yarn and make another one of these. :).
I picked up some more homespun from Lionbrand to make a comfort shawl for my future daughter in law who lost her father 2 months ago. I hope she will like the color I chose. I wanted to find out what her father’s favorite color was and make it that color but I didn’t get that information and the yarn was on sale this holiday week end so I picked out what I hope will be an soothing color to help with her grief. I’ll be doing the Tara Shawl again. It’s quick, easy and, with their homespun yarn, pretty. I’ll post a picture after I get it started and enough done on the shawl so that you can see what the color will look like. I do not use the fringe when I make this shawl, fringe, to me seems to get in the way more often than not.
