Jodi’s Birthday

3 Dec

My sister’s birthday was Nov. 25th, and I made her this shawlette:

Purple Wool/Bamboo Shawlette

Here’s a close-up of the stitch pattern:

It turned out nicely when it was blocked.

I made it from a wool/bamboo blend yarn in a dusty purple color. I liked this pattern fairly well, but I think if I made it again I’d use a thicker yarn; this was fingering weight and it took a while to complete. I like the way it turned out, though, and a thicker yarn wouldn’t give me this kind of lacy texture as much.

The pattern was the Blue Jean Shawl from Knottie by Nature.

    Love it! Have worn it several times – looks great over all those black clothes I own!
