Not quite Ma’s shawl… December 1, 2008

…but I really love how it knit up. The pattern is Forest Canopy Shawl and is available on the designer’s website or through Ravelry. I knit it using Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend, and I’m completely smitten with it. Manos is a cooperative that provides a fair working wage to village women in Uruguay…so if the softness and sheen of merino and silk aren’t reason enough to swoon, you can feel good about where your purchase money went.

I have a feeling this is one of those finished items that will see a lot of use…so versatile! It’s a scarf, hood, wrap…and I’m only starting to play with it and see what works. 🙂


More pictures on my Ravelry page…you know, I think I need to knit a nice, big, warm version of this for snuggling on the couch reading.

Otherwise new on the home scene — I’m on a sock-monkey-sewing binge. I hope to have my own “barrel of monkeys” (well, four anyway!) for the littles…I think they will be great Christmas gifts. Pictures to come soon. 🙂
