This is really my selfish knitting project. It seems that no matter how many projects I start intending to be just for me, I end up gifting them for birthdays or other occasions.

I have a TON of scrap yarn from this past year’s knitting projects.

This shawl will be knit from a wide assortment of yarn: All the odds and ends of skeins used in a project, or whole skeins that I have never found a project for. Skeins of all weights, all colors, all textures. This may end up being beautiful, or it may end up ugly. But it will be mine, I’m sure it will be comfortable on a chilly winter night, and I definitely will love it and keep it for me.

Row 1-33 Lion Brand Tweed Stripes Caribbean

Row 34- Lion Brand Homespun Ambrosia

I frogged this. I needed to simplify and declutter my projects and this one just didn’t make the cut.

I will try this again with another yard though.
