The color of the yarn is wrong in the photo.
I am pleased to report that I finished and blocked the shawl. For blocking I did minimal pinning and pulling. I want this to be a very casual scarf-type shawl. I think I have succeeded.
The pattern is The Sunshine Shawl for Sad People by Sylvia McFadden. The yarn is Knerd String fingering in turquawesome. I mainly used the pattern as a guide. I used the numbers and the increases. The yarn is the star of this show. The pattern is a great first shawl or a great canvas for experimenting. The yarn is one of my favorites. There are many variations in the shading. It’s a merino/nylon blend which is perfect for socks or any pattern calling for fingering weight yarn.
This project was knit as part of the Ramp Up To Camp KAL that was held in the Loopy Groupy forum on Ravelry.
