Kindness Shawl


I did it, I finished the shawl.  I was utterly delighted with the colorway and with the fingering wool that I purchased at a fiber festival a few years ago.  The skein is a single ply but easy to knit with and has a wonderful hand.
 

The kindness shawl pattern would be a perfect pattern to try if you are a beginning-intermediate knitter who knows all the basic stitches in knitting and can follow patterns. I will definitely make this shawl again since it uses up 400 yards of fingering weight indie-dyed wool - you know the ones that knitters collect, I have them and you might have them in your stash as well.

  12. That little shawl is so delicate and feminine, just beautiful. The yarn and the pattern play well together too. With your encouragement, I am going to find a skein of spring colored yarn and knit this pattern too. I'm ready for some Spring like colors.

  16. Bravo! I love your FO. You picked the best colorway ever. I think of granite rocky mountains speckled with fossilized trilobites. I'll have to look at this pattern now.
    I hope to have an Etsy shop one day; I already have a name picked out. I need to experiment first with all the ideas I have in my head and that have been written down. I'm a snail.
    Thank you for the zipper pouch, sweater, and book cheer. Also, thank you for sharing what you're reading. You're doing well with the written word this year!
