Knit Shawl using Sock Yarn

Here’s the shawl I finished a few weeks ago. It’s my favorite warm-up wrap. It’s loosely based on (what else?) a Ravelry pattern. Link here.

It’s pretty simple – just keep increasing in the middle. For variety, I threw in a couple of purl rows here and there to add texture.

I used Red Heart’s Heart and Sole sock yarn, so it would be lightweight, instead of bulky – about 3 hanks. It’s the perfect thing to wrap around my shoulders while working at the computer.  I’ve used this yarn for many projects, with great results.  It’s 70% superwash wool, and 30% nylon infused with Aloe.  Knits up great, at a lower cost than most sock yarn.

Working on new podcast – will be up on Monday, Feb. 1, due to limits of my podcast account.
