Simple Yet Effective Shawl

Here's my first finished object of 2010!




Simple yet effective fingering weight shawl

I had so much fun working with Angela's handspun and this was such a simple and gratifying project to make. The pattern was simple, so I was able to admire the yarn and color changes throughout the project.

I've been wanting to try spinning for a while now, but since 2010 has been deemed "use my stash" year, working with Angela's handspun was the perfect way to hold off starting a new hobby (for now!)

  2. Very pretty! The yarn looks so soft. I have a lot of yarn I really need to use up. Fabric on the other hand, I've been doing pretty good using my stash.

  6. Oh, I adore the shawl. Beautiful colors. Looks like we're in the same boat with regards to 2010 being a knit from the stash year. Let's cheer eachother on!
