Noro silk garden shawl

Shawl made with 3 skeins of Noro silk garden using sz 17 needles. I took this picture at the archway to our new vegetable garden. Steve said it's not quite tall enough for him so he has to help me make a bigger one. Friday I decided to knit up a shawl for my sister in laws birthday which was today Sunday. I was able to finish it quickly using the needles that Lula at www.lulasyarnshop.com, so kindly let me borrow. Lula is such a sweet helpful person, I really enjoy shopping at her store.
This week I installed a clothesline all by myself and changed not one but two flat tires on our car. I'm so proud of me!

Such pretty colors! It's the perfect shawl for everyday wear and for going out -- dress it up or down. I really like those flexible pieaces.

Your shawl turned out really nice, I just love those colors! You used 17's? Thats fantastic, a quick knit with such flare. You can even use it to wrap around your waist over a simple black dress or skirt!
By the way, congradulations on changing the tires, it's not an easy job!

Thanks for popping by my blog. I know Perth well and I love the canal - every year we make a ceremony of the first authentic (on canal) beaver tail and go for a skate!
