Off the needles…pale blues.

Thrifted yarn and easy patterns = two finished shawlettes.

I think this yarn is alpaca.  It’s two shades done in stripes to get enough to make a shawlette.  The knitting is easy, mindless, meditative.

This yarn is a wool/alpaca blend.  Simple feather n fan style shawlette.  Wish there had been more to make a larger shawl.  I’m just about done with a larger autumnal shawl in worsted brown and purple with a feather n fan border, and will post pics when I get it finished (maybe next week?)

This one is a birthday present for my mom next week (Shh! Don’t tell!).  I used to dislike feather n fan patterns and favor more delicate, intricate lacework.  But with four busy kids, and needing to put my work down frequently, I have learned to appreciate a simple, predictable pattern.

I’ll be in Salem tomorrow reffing a derby bout, but will be back Sunday with a new recipe.

Blessings on your weekend!
