Anyways - My SIL asked me to knit this shawl. She picked out the pattern and yarn from her local Michaels.
"Knit Friendship Shawl" - Free pattern on Michaels website
Yarn used: Loops & Thread Impeccable in Claret
I love the stitch pattern! Its difficulty level and the repetitions with no increasing or decreasing are just what I needed to relax. :) Having the shawl on my wrap while I knit it was also very warm and comfy. I'm actually working on the 2nd one. I just couldn't help it. :P
I wish I had time to crochet some things for myself. I'm cold!!! :D - It even snowed here earlier this month. Brrrrr.
I'm looking at Mary Jane Slippers, Clapochet scarf, and... I can also use a bag like this or this!
I'll try to be back soon... :) You all stay warm!
