On My Needles

This week I planned to sew in the ends of my daughter’s scarf.

Then I found a Yarn shop close to where I am living.

Of course, this meant I could start a new project! Yippee!

Jodie Knitting Ridged Shawl by Plymouth Yarns2

 

I bought Katia Merino Baby Plus yarn, it is so soft, and I love the colorway (Dye lot:214).

The shawl I’m knitting is the Ridged Shawl pattern by Plymouth Yarns

The design has an easy lace stitch pattern, and there is no right or wrong side.

This works for me!
