So you get yourself three skeins of wonderful TOSH DK and you start wondering "3 skiens huh? Too few to make a sweater, too many to make a hat. So what now? Maybe a shawl?".
Do you want lace?Â Nope, you want the shawl to be warm and cozy, not see-through.
Do you want cables? Nope, too fussy.
So why not just stick to your good friend Garter? And Stockinette to get some variety? And short rows for the challenge and excitement?
And then you knit. You increase here, wrap and turn there... and wait a second! The shawl starts resembling a bat. OMG! So what do you name it? Dracula? Nosferatu? Eric? Or maybe just THE VAMPYRE?
I hope you have as much fun knitting the shawl as I had seeing it being born. :-)
