Lightening Shawl

I finished this KAL with Sweet Pea's Yarn and Gifts last Spring, and now that the weather is colder I got a chance to wear it. The Lightening Shawl is a fun project to knit, and using the variegated Mini Mochi yarn made this shawl look fabulous. I inadvertently added a couple of rows (count much?), which I noticed when I started to run short on yarn. Thanks to my fellow knitter Kathy, I was able to use what she had left from her shawl to finish mine. 




Here is a close-up......maybe a little too "close-up"! LOL Hard to take those pics of yourself with the camera phone and smile at the same time :-)
I love the simple shawl pin I picked up last year at Knit Michigan. 


Posts to this blog have been few and far between since there has been NO sewing going on, and all my knitting is for Christmas right now....."stealth" knitting, as we knitters like to call it! Look for a knitting-heavy post soon, and a year-end wrap up after that. 
After the holidays, I'm looking forward to supplementing my work wardrobe with some new pieces. Last night after wrapping gifts (and a nice red wine!) I took full advantage of the sale going on at Gorgeous Fabrics......a gift to me!

  2. Gorgeous shawl, Patty. I am with you on the no sewing. I have been scrapbooking with all my spare time, for a January 1st birthday. I thought it would be only 1 album, well that turned into 3! Enjoy your fabrics from Gorgeous fabrics.
