I started this shawl last spring but then the hot weather forced me to set it aside for a few months. However, we had enough cooler nights over the past few weeks that tempted me to pick it up and finish off the final ruffle.
Pattern: Milk Run Shawl by Cat Wong 3-Ruffle Version
Needles: 5mm circular needle (24 & 32")
This is a pretty simple pattern to knit (mostly garter stitch) but you do have to pay attention while knitting the ruffle . I found that stitch markers were a big help for me there.
I am pleased with how the shawl turned out and I love the size it is now but even if it grows it will just be a larger, drapier shawl.
As soon as the daytime temperatures cool down I'll let you see how it looks when I'm wearing it. Wonder if any of the local rags will publish my photo if I wear it to the local 7-11 on a milk run?
As much as I'm looking forward to cooler fall days, I am enjoying this last little blast of summer. But I'm definitely getting into fall-knit mode and getting all excited about dipping into more worsted weight yarns . You too?
