Shawl that Jazz!

shawl that jazz
I'll admit it. I'm not really a shawl kinda girl. But I love this.

I'm most likely to wear this wrapped up on the couch reading a good book, but I love it!

I love everything about it. The simplicity of the garter stitch. The gorgeous LSS yarn. The fact that it reminds me of friends and camp. The use of stash yarn. The focused let's see what happens when I focus on knitting absolutely just one thing. The shawl itself.

I think you need to become a shawl kind of girl!!! You look awesome. I wear a lot of mine with a jean jacket.

Oh, how pretty! I love the color too, it brings out the gorgeous blue of your eyes.

I have ridiculous love for your shawl and I'm not a shawl girl either. I'm thinking I might need to do one in Kaw Kaw.

I am a shawl kinda girl and I covet yours! It looks like you could wear it for many occasions. You have the most gorgeous yarn and the most gorgeous eyes!

That looks fabulous - both on you and in that colorway! I agree, I think you *should* become a shawl kind of girl! :)

Jodi said...

Just marvelous! I love the colors, the simplicity of the garter stitch, and the ruffle. I like to wrap up in a shawl while I work at the computer, esp. in the winter.

cupcakefaerie said...

It's gorgeous and gorgeous on you! I hope it will also be seen on you outside of the house. :)

Kathy in San Jose said...

Love it! I'm planning to cast one on this weekend!

The shawl looks great on you! The color really makes your eyes stand out so much! Just lovely. A cozy camp souvenir. ; )

Beverly said...

Soooo pretty! I have GOT to make myself one of those.

Virtuous said...

WOW! You whipped that up FAST and only 2 skeins!!

It does look soooo cozy!! I gotta do it!

Trillian42 said...

It looks fabulous! Guess I know what my LSS needs to be!

Zonda said...

Just fabulous! I agree with Chemgrrl, perfect with your eyes!! I just love that colorway too!

peaknits said...

So pretty! And perfect for wrapping around your shoulders while snuggling up with a good book!

snbLeslie said...

Soooo beautiful and great color too. I think it would be a great date night shawl on a spring evening. And thanks for the reminder of LSS growing after it's blocked - I'm using it for my February Lady sweater.

Jadielady said...

So beautiful! And it definitely brings out your eyes.

Rani said...

I agree with above - this is a great color with your eyes. How did you . . . when did you . . . it's a huge shawl and you seemed to have whipped that our over night. I'm starting to think that some of my bloggy friends possess knitting spells and incantations to make their knitting fly off their needles. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

ps. I want one. It's beautiful and cozy.

kasiaiscarly said...
