Pretty Yarn AND Pretty Finished Project Friday!
Okay, again, so it's not my handspun. But isn't this a beauty?
What is it?
Why it's Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet! I purchased 2 skeins at the new Yarn Store in Town called Yarn Cupboard. The owner is fantastic! I am looking forward to returning when I have more $$$$$
Did I mention I have a pretty Finished Project too? Why yes! I did!
Pattern: Shetland Triangle - Evelyn Clark (Pattern in the book Wrap Style)
Yarn: Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace (Didn't even use the whole ball)
Needles: US 5 Circular
Mods: None, I followed the pattern to a T.
I am giving this shawl to one of my dear good friends Linda (she comments on here as Lemon) I started knitting Linda a sweater like 15 years ago and never finished it. Well now I just don't like the sweater so she said it was ok that I make her a shawl. This was a quick knit! I loved working on it too. AND I am totally in love with my blocking wires. What a time saver!
Lemon, your shawl is on it's way. I mailed it yesterday! I hope you enjoy it. I want a picture!

Happy feet is a cute name for yarn! I can't wait to see what it will be made into. I love the shawl, and I'm sure that your friend will, too!
