F.O. Stupidly Simple Shawl




I love putting FO in the subject line. Makes me feel like I've done something good!

Project Details:
Started on March 6th and finished on June 5th. Longer than one would think - but this was the car or doctor's office project. Not something I worked on all the time. I used 6 skeins of Bristol Yarn Gallery Buckingham Fingering alpaca yarn held together. Well I held two strands together (not all 6 at one time). This gave me the weight I wanted and it still drapes well I think.

The pattern is really only 2 sentences long. I used size 7 needles and didn't change anything from the pattern. It was really a fun project!

  2. Good for you! I really need to get going on my UFO's. It does look good having the FO in the title! Love the purple.

  3. It came out great! It looks like the perfect size/weight for when the wind picks up in the summer evenings.

  5. I am going to try to use remnants of a variety of yarns with this pattern to make an Eileen sized shawl.
