Here's the shawl I finished a few weeks ago. It's my favorite warm-up wrap. It's loosely based on (what else?) a Ravelry pattern. Link here.
It's pretty simple - just keep increasing in the middle. For variety, I threw in a couple of purl rows here and there to add texture.
I used Red Heart's Heart and Sole sock yarn, so it would be lightweight, instead of bulky - about 3 hanks. It's the perfect thing to wrap around my shoulders while working at the computer. I've used this yarn for many projects, with great results. It's 70% superwash wool, and 30% nylon infused with Aloe. Knits up great, at a lower cost than most sock yarn.
Working on new podcast - will be up on Monday, Feb. 1, due to limits of my podcast account.
