My First Shawl WIP

It's been a relatively quiet handful of days.  Everyone is just plain ready for the winter to be over, waiting out this latest (and hopefully last) Arctic blast. 

I started my first shawl on Saturday while Astrid and Cynar were at Dagorhir practice.  This is The Simple Yet Effective Shawl in some goldenrod dyed wool from Ginny.   You may recognize the fiber from that sad little sock attempt I made many moons ago.  I just so happened to have exactly the right yardage, so it came out of the stash.

Cynar is headed downtown after work for a guys night, so I am in for an evening of clothes shopping with Astrid, Mediterranean food, and some more knitty time!

Linking up to Crafting On

...and Yarn Along.


  1. Nice start to the shawl, I love the creamy color you chose. I too am ready for Winter to end and Spring weather to come.

  2. I recently finished a Simple Yet Effective cowl. Loved knitting it - it was so simple! :) Your shawl is off to a great start. Love the color!
