Garden Party

Back to knitting. Concurrent with working on the garden, I finished the Garden Party Shawl from Two Old Bags (coincidence?). What's great about this shawl is that the shoulder shaping gives a U-shaped neckline so the shawl stays on better. And I really like the ruffles.
  • Pattern: Garden Party Shawl by Two Old Bags (the picture on the front of the pattern does not do justice to the pattern).
  • Yarn: Black Water Abbey two-ply fingering organic wool in Dark Welsh, 400 yards/3 ounces; approximately 720 yards total.
  • Needles: US5
  • Finished size: 23 inches center back.

Mooch supervises both the garden and the knitting, but participates in neither.

I like that shawl - it looks do-able for a lace mess-up knitter like me ...

Sue, don't you realize that the role of any *good* supervise is just that - to make sure that YOU do everything correctly. As long as that is going on, Mooch doesn't need to partipate! (Love the picture, btw.)
