Pink Dandelion - Samothrace Shawl

Last year, a couple of my friends, Kristi and Debbie, launched their own yarn line, Pink Dandelion Yarns.  I was lucky enough to snag a skein from their first release!  Pink Dandelion offers great colors and their Nylon Sock is a good value for an indie yarn at 420 yards per hank.  Mine actually had over 475 yards!

Recently, I saw Kristi knitting a prototype of a soon-to-be self published shawl pattern.  And every since then, I've been bugging her to let me test knit the shawl.  She was finally ready for me to start last week and this is the result!  I love it!  Don't you just love those points...so cool.

Yarn: Pink Dandelion - Nylon Sock
Color: Money (That's What I Want)

 This is a great shawl for those that are either intimidated by lace or don't like lace shawls.  I also like this shawl because it is not just a plain garter stitch.    Believe it or not, this is an instant gratification shawl.  The stitch pattern is so quick and easy, paired with the garter stitch, it really makes for a speedy knit!
