Pattern: Ripple Shawl (http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/kms-rippleshawl.html) by Lion Brand
Yarn: Bernat Naturals alpaca (30% alpaca/70% acrylic)
Needles: Size 6

This was my nan's Christmas present. (My father is so kindly holding it up for me.) I really loved this pattern and the YARN. Yummy. I will definitely need to knit more with alpaca yarn as it was so soft. This has a lovely drape and weight to it. (I had to make sure it was big enough by throwing it on my shoulders!)

Pattern: Sinful Ribbed Scarf (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sinful-ribbed-scarf) by Classic Elite
Yarn: Bernat Super Value, white with grey through it
Needles: Size 7, I think.

This was a "Oh no, I'm out of yarn. I need another project to hold me over" project. :P I needed to wait for my boyfriend to pick me up another skein of yarn (Michaels discount <3) so I started this at school that morning. Had it knit up in less than two actual days, though it took "longer" because I used the wrong piece of yarn and ended up pulling the skein apart to work it out. Yeah ... got frustrated, cut and knotted. Ended up giving it to my friend Amanda because hey, Amanda loves me, I love her and it was vegan-friendly.

That is a pretty shawl, although in your Dad's hands it looks like a baby blanket. ;) Nice job!

I'm sure if I blocked it out, it wouldn't look quite so tiny. :P My dad does have big hands. Dad and I are the same height, but his hands are twice as thick as mine so maybe next time I'll take pictures with me holding the FOs. ;D
