A Dash of Colour

I test knit a shawl for a friend. It is designed to use one skein of Noro or colorful sock yarn, but I did it in some barely colored handspun that has been marinating in the stash for some time. The pattern is available on Ravelry here.

It is a very easy knit, perfect for the beginning lace knitter. It is a shawlette that sits nicely on the shoulders due to the shaping. I made it a bit bigger, as I wanted more coverage, and had the yarn available.

These photos were the best I could do, as it has been very windy here. Spring on the prairie, you know.

Very delicate - looks nice and light to wear. It's nice to see what you are up to.
I am almost inspired to start a blog myself.

Annie, beautiful, as always! I envy your talent and skills.

Also, I really like your blog, and have for some time. I was recently nominated for the beautiful blogger award, and it's an award where you nominate others as well, so I nominated maple corners!

Hi Annie,
I've followed your post for a few years, and wanted to say hello. I also watched the HBO project that you and your mother were in. I am currently working on my Bachelors degree in nursing (I've been a nurse for 16 years), and the Alzheimer's Project with you and your mother is one of the required videos to watch. Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that you and your mom are still touching lives, and shaping the minds and hearts of future nurses. Hope all is well.
