Half circular shawl worked all in garter stitch featuring two single ply yarns. The two yarns used in this project were single ply yarns and though one is called sport and one fingering weight, both (to me) are closer to fingering weight. A great project to use one of your speckled yarns with a solid from your stash.
Also garter stitch makes for easy, mindless knitting while the stripes add just a bit of interest so you don’t get too bored.

This is a collaborative project with Elaine Jason.
