Chinook Lace Shawl
Hi all!

I've missed you! I've been MIA for awhile now. I just finished my first year of teaching, and I also just completed a six-month alternative education certification program.

Whew!



I didn't have much time to knit, but I did manage to crank out the Chinook Lace Shawl, a kit I purchased from Knit Picks.

The shawl was an easy knit, and I just love the yarn included in the kit. It blocked nicely, with the fibers opening up to provide a beautiful drape. The shawl is rather large, but that's really what drew my attention to the shawl. I've always wanted something I could snuggle into.

This kit comes in a green/blue/purple colorway as well.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my project!

WOW! It's beautiful!

Congratulations on your first year of teaching, and finishing the alternative ed. program. You've been really, really busy, but found time to knit a piece of art, good going!

WOW! What a stunner! Beautiful work! Congrats on completing your first year of teaching, an alternative education certificate program, as well as this lovely shawl.

With that kind of track record, you should have time to make a bazillion things this summer!

I am completely amazed that you knitted that beauiful work of art!
Congratulations on your teaching year. Our schools here in Lakeland FL will start back to school on Aug 22. I work as a crossing guard for the elementary school behind my house.
