“Priorities” is a large rectangular shawl that is comprised of five triangles. When you just need to knit for the therapy: having your hands busy so your head can get some clarity is the goal of this knitting design.

It uses four different colors of the above named yarns. I used one skein of the Yowza and Tibetan Dream Sock and 2 skeins for the Sanctuary and Road to China Light. As you can see the yarns are different weights and yet the shawl works with the US 9 needle.

Please check out Helen Bingham Designs Group under the “Test Knitters for the Priorities Shawl” you will see pictures, ideas, concerns and answers to many of your questions regarding color placement. At this time there is not a schematic for the shawl.

The test knitters who helped me with this shawl were truly amazing with their assistance on color choices, number counts, constructive advice, pictures and overall input.

Thank you so much to the talented test knitters: computknit, knittyprofessor2, josefineLH, weissyae, pammyann, woolpoetry, joynicholson, tuneli, themonkeygirl, caboodle and stephanie48.

I hope you all enjoy knitting this shawl.
Thank you!!!
