Knitting sets your mind free and makes you see the other side of whatever this will be.....the purlside or the happier side of life!

If someone asked me what my favorite yarn is I would probably say Kidsilk Haze by Rowan .This yarn is so incredible to work with and although it is expensive (about $15 per ball) with only one ball you could make a shawl like this one!
It measures 10" X 52" and there are many ways to wear it. 
I have made this one for my neighbor Barb whose daughter is getting married this month. Of course I picked a discontinued color (nightly) and I had to investigate to find more yarn on the internet. I ended up ordering three balls at Purls
mostly because I thought it would be cool to receive a package from NY! I want this shawl to be wider so I will add on to the sides. Then there would be two options to make it: a lazier version with only one ball and if a wider scarf is desired and patience is not running low this would be the second version which I am currently working on.
