2nd Time Around

I've knit another Andrea.
Do you remember the first one?
And how much I love it?
I love this one even more...



I went up a needle size so it would be a little bigger and a little more drapey.
It turned out exactly the way I'd hoped.
I love it when that happens!!!



Andrea's Shawl by
size: S
yarn:  Patons Classic Wool in Plum Heather
and Cascade 220 Heathers
needles:  size 8
finished size:  47"W x 23 1/2"H


Hmmm.
I think I need a large one now.
To really wrap around myself.
Would that be too excessive?
Or obsessive?
To knit a third Andrea???

What a beautiful design, and I really love the colors you chose. The border is fantastic too. Congrats with finishing the second one - which is my favorite out of the 2

Gabi said...

Ohh...and it would NOT be excessive to make a third one. All good things come in 3. Or was it 4? 2? Who cares. All good things come in your most favorite amount. That should cover it.

How lovely it is, I don't think having too many beautiful things is excessive. :)

Joining everybody else in saying "do it!" Those shawls are gorgeous and it would be lovely to be swaddled in a huge one while the snow is falling outside.

Looks so pretty. It's such an unusual pattern. Almost looks like a patriotic set since the gray is really kind of blue on my monitor.
