Birthday Shawl

Today is my birthday and what better way to celebrate than with a new shawl for me!

I made the Weaver's Mini Shawl

Weaver's Mini Shawl

Stats:
Pattern:
Weaver's Wool Mini Shawl by Peggy Pignato
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca
Needles: US 10½
Alterations: I knit this with three different colors instead of just one. It took a half ball of the light green, a whole ball of the dark green and two balls of the brown.

Dec 08 113

It's actually not that mini! It's very very warm and the Berroco Ultra Alpaca makes it nice and squishy. It's becoming one of my favorite yarns! I knit the Vineland Mittens from it and used the scraps from the mittens and this shawl to knit the Neck Cuffs.
Have a great day!

Have a fabulous birthday! Wow, does that shawl look great. I enjoyed knitting that pattern immensely -- I used Manos Silk Blend, which was luscious to knit.
