Schooner Shawl

While I am still knitting the never-ending above the knee socks for The Daughter, I needed to work on something with a little more brain power to it. I chose this 'Schooner' shawl from Classic Elite Yarns free pattern section. The yarn, of course, is from Knit Picks. I have never used this type of yarn before and when the box arrived (God bless our mail man) I was giddy. It is so soft.
Knit Picks
Andean Silk
96 yards
55% Superfine Alpaca (need I say more)
23% Silk
22% Merino Wool (LOVE merino wool)

The pattern was so easy I made it more difficult than need be. After a few trial runs I was off to the races. I believe it shall fit a little gal that lives in this house quite nicely.


  1. Very pretty. I love to make shawls. I'll be glad to see the finished result. I hope to be able to post a sweater set on my blog soon. I need to get busy. I have dragged my feet with projects. Glad to see someone is diligent!

  2. Isn't that yarn wonderful ! ! ! I found it last year and made a bunch of neckwarmers. So soft and beautiful! Can't wait to see your shawl.

  3. This yarn truly is so easy to knit with. It is super soft. I am working on the border now and just turned the point, which I had to try three times-because I am just making this shawl harder than it IS!!!! But it will soon be done and another project will start, I hope.
