The pi r square shawl

This is one of my best stash busting feats - I bought this yarn on ebay, thinking that it was worsted, not lace weight -- beware of yarn that you can't see or touch when you purchase -- of course it was only $10 for the lot. So it sat in my stash - 250g. I have wanted to make this shawl for forever!! And there we go, while trying to find a new project the two met and it was glorious. This is probably the single best learning experience I have ever had knitting - there is more on that in my blog. Better then that, I think that I have worn this everyday since I finished it, either as a scarf or a shawl.

Have a great weekend!!

I love that SO much. I want to make one. I actaully started making one of those once, and had some 'issues'. AWESOME!

Wow- busting a laceweight UFO out of your stash is great- fantastic even! It looks wonderful!
