The Simple Things in life are often the best

Looking for the perfect TV knitting project? Then look no further than the Simple Things Shawlette from Rainy Day Goods. This easy-to-knit shawl is perfect for showing off the colours in handspun yarn.

And just when the stocking stitch rows are getting long enough to become a little tedious, Mary-Heather has thrown in some feature rows to keep things interesting.

The sleeves and a good part of the body are done. I’m using a combination of EZ’s Hawser Sweater (from Knitting Workshop) and PGR’s Full Yoke Sweater (from Knitting in the Old Way) as a guide.

Handspun from "Cauldron" Polwarth by Hello Yarn.
