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
