Boo - tiful dreamer

I couldn't resist the silly title but I am so happy this is finished in time for fall wearing!

Parts of this Multnomah Shawl were extremely easy (garter stitch center) and some a little trickier (the increasing Feather and Fan section) but I think knitting it in the daytime instead of late at night would have made it go much quicker. I kept losing track of my end increases and having to go back and rip it out. I probably would have been finished by Friday if I had kept my mind on my work!

Part of the problem was that this yarn is so soft. I would set it down to watch something on television and just start stroking it like a cat. I have a tiny bit of the skein left so the yardage was lovely and very little color bled out when I washed it. I highly recommend the J.Knits Superwash Me Light Sock Yarn!

OOOOOOHHHH! So pretty! Got two sweaters on the needles, so can't indulge in a sudden shawl craving yet, but will remember this one.
