La La’s Simple Shawl – Finished

Here she is — my second shawl finished for 10 Shawls in 2010.

Simple Shawl 2010

La La’s Simple Shawl by Laura Linneman
Paton’s Kroy Socks FX – Clover Colors (2.57 skeins/403 yds)
U.S. size 6 circulars
Size 61.5 x 25 inches
CO 1.19.10, BO 1.28.10, Blocked 1.31.10

Notes:  All in all–very pleased. Easy to memorize and keep up with the pattern. Yarn didn’t stripe the way I anticipated, but I really like the look now that it’s stretched and blocked.  Cut out part of the yarn in the 3rd skein on the last garter rows so more orange/red color would be at the bottom to try to balance the concentrated color at the top.  Elastic cast off.  5 garter/stockinette/lace/ stockinette repeats, 5 garter rows at end, 265 stitches total

Modifications:  Cast on 7 sts instead of 5 so I could have two garter stitches on the edges.

Some say the Groundhog saw his shadow yesterday.  I’m just not going to worry about that now.  I have lovely shawls to keep me warm and if it stays cold a little longer, I have a little longer to wear them.  How’s that for positive thinking      🙂

Have a great day everyone!  Thank you so much for coming by to visit.
