Road Trip

The shawl pattern, that is. Although, there was a road trip to Oregon just recently, to meet our new little grandson and spend some time with his big sister.
But this really is about the shawl pattern I came across recently while "doing research."
I had bought yarn to make an Elise Shawl in Oregon, started it and decided after just a few rows that the pattern did not do the yarn justice. I think MadTosh is better suited for knitting, just my opinion. So, after much searching online, I decided I would be better off with either a solid or a sock yarn, something with long stripes and put that particular project on the back burner (it's getting kind of crowded back there).
I did, however find this pattern and, after a bit of research and a quick trip to JoAnn's, got started. A quick project, fun, easy to do and the yarn works well for it. No, it's not a natural fiber, but I'm okay with it. It's just right for this project.

Beautiful design, size, and flower details make this the perfect shawl. Just enough to keep the chill away on those spring days.
