I decided it would be a good idea to donate a shawl to the silent auction at our schools Spring Fair, only problem was, I had to find time to knit it!
Well I managed to finish it and here it is.
I could have gone for a nice safe colour that would appeal to lots of people, but this yarn made me think of Spring, so apple green it is. It's a lovely blend of cotton and silk so works really well in our warm spring weather.
It's a Ravelry pattern called 'Girl's Best Friend' and I really love the way it turned out. I didn't make any changes except that I added a small garter stitch border before casting off.
