I'm in love!

With this shawl!
Or shawlette.
The knitting was addictive.
And it's an absolute joy to wear!



I can see endless color combinations.
The small size takes so little yarn that it's perfect for using up those odds and ends and stray skeins in your stash!



So versatile and gorgeous!
Dress it up or down.


You've gotta knit this :)

yarn:  leftover Cascade 220 (I'm pretty sure, but the labels were missing)
