"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

Much Better!

This is the Japanese Garden Shawl, by Wendy Johnson.  The pattern is being sold as a  fund-raiser, proceeds going to the Red Cross for Japanese earthquake/tsunami relief.  I should check again, but if memory serves me correctly - she had raised over $4,000 when last I checked.  I think the effort lasts through the end of the month.  So....if you are so inclined, you know what to do...... 


It was a quick and enjoyable project.  Yarn is Cascade Heritage sock yarn on size 5 needle.  I used less than one full skein.  That's usually the way when I have more than one skein available.  lol. 

My postman brought only disappointment yesterday, so I started a spinning project.  Speaking or which .....I have a spinning goodie coming in the mail soon.  Nope, not more fiber this time!  It comes courtesy of the hubbs - he's so supportive of all my "habits"!

It's just beautiful! I'm in awe of your talent and your speed! I just started a shawl myself and I'll be lucky to have it done by summer!! I really like the Heritage sock yarn, but I didn't consider it for a shawl. The stitch definition is terrific!

I liked your shawl so much I got the pattern! Had been trying to decide between two and your photo made for an easy decision. Thanks. Don''t you love it when you have an enabler?

Very pretty. I am planning on making this as well and was going to use my Fat Cats handspun that you enticed me with. Please bring it Thursday so that I can drool over it properly. --Cindy
