Finished shawl.

@clothmama suggested a separate thread for this.

I didn't use a pattern so I'll try and explain what I did.

I did a garter stitch tab cast on then a simple shawl pattern of row1:knit 2,yo,k to marker, yo, slip marker,k1, slip marker, yo, knit to last 2 St, yo, k2. Row 2:purl. Repeat.

Every 11th row, I did an eyelet row to add some texture without getting into counting territory.

The border is a crochet V stich and picot border that I found here http://www.mooglyblog.com/living-edge-1 ... -patterns/

The yarn is James C Brett marble dk.

I should add this used about 170g and fits nicely over the shoulders or with the point at the front as a scarf.

So pretty @Bugglyboo! I really like the yarn! I 'm sure she'll love it!

Don't forget Jess if you use the tag function and add a tag saying knits and maybe 2016 crafts you build up a nice list of your projects for the year

I know it takes a bit to get in the habit, I often have to edit and go back in to add them :giggle:
