Cascade 220 Aran Splatter Shawl

Very happy with the finish of the shawl.  I used two skeins of Cascade 200 aran Splatter.  I had Daffodil and Forest as my selections.  The picot bind off was really a fun way to finish this quick shawlette.   I gave it a soft wash in a vinegar and soapy bath.  

I loved knitting it on big needles, well 8s.  The pattern was so easy to follow.  The MESH-en-ger shawl is just garter sections and simple knit two together mesh sections.  

I hope to be knitting away on the new shawl during the Holiday weekend.  I frogged the Lorna’s laces socks and began a shawl from a book win.  Wendy Knits sent Interweaves Classic Knit Shawls new book to me.   So why not continue the shawl love? 

Do you make anything special for 4th of July?  I’m thinking I should make something special.  Zach’s coming home!

  2. Turned out lovely Kathy. Yay for your boy coming home – that’s got to make you very happy.
    Still no plans here which I am loving. It’s stinking hot, so cold dishes for dinner.

  3. The picot edging is lovely. I generally don’t do anything special for the 4th but my husband is trying out my dad’s old Weber Tuesday. I got him some basic sausages to grill and I’ll be marinating chicken tomorrow.
