LaLa’s Simple Shawl X2

 

I am still knitting bit by bit. I went to Purl Soho Warehouse with Stacy and picked up some great yarn. Cascade Luna in three beautiful colors. It was awesome! The idea was to make a shawl for myself. The colors are a beautiful chartreuse kind of color, aqua, and blue. These are my favorite colors and I couldn’t wait to get started. The next day, Stacy had the day off from work so I went over there and knitted with her in her room and watched movies all day. It was really awesome. The pattern I chose was LaLa’s Simple Shawl which looked simple (hence the name) and was easy to memorize. I didn’t even need the pattern after the first set of repeats.

LaLa's Simple ShawlHere are the colors for your amazement. The yarn was soft and cotton and so easy to use. There was a little fluke with the amount of yarn I got from Purl Soho. I thought I had 3 skeins of each color in my shopping bag but it turns out I had 6 of each color! Can you imagine?! Yes, I ran right down and returned the extra 3 skeins of each color of yarn. My conscience couldn’t stand it at all for even a couple of minutes if I didn’t. I really enjoyed the pattern and the colors. Here are the finished pictures.

So I finished within a week and really enjoyed the speed and color of this knit. So I had some stash yarn and a very good friend’s birthday coming up so…..what do you think happened? I knitted another one. Yep, that’s right. This next one took me a bit longer cause I had other stuff going on in my life (who’d have thought). The yarn was Debbie Mumm in Pine Tree colorway. It was super soft and very nice. I really enjoyed using this yarn as well. The colors are my absolute favorite in green and I bought this for myself to make something warm and toasty. However, this is what happens in life. Her birthday was coming up and I needed to get something done for her so she wins. Here are these photos of the Pine Tree Simple Shawl.
