FO: shawl
This is the triangle shawl pattern from Lion Brand, using LB Homespun (which I hate knitting with).
The colors I used (Regency and Waterfall...yes, only two colors there!) don't really match, but I liked them together for some strange reason. Kind of a murky/clear waters effect, I feel.
My eleven-year-old daughter loves this shawl. She doesn't know it's going to be under the Christmas tree next week.

Oh my, that is really pretty! I must have missed that pattern, because I hadn't seen a triangle shawl with the eyelets. I love the texture they provide, along with the stripes. Thanks so much for sharing! Do you think the pattern would knit up ok with regular worsted yarn?

Many many people have knit it in worsted, with Jiffy, with light weight yarn, you name it. It seems to turn out great.

Very pretty! I really like that color combination as well. I'm sure your daughter will be happy to have it.
