It Pays to Follow Up With Grandma...
Because I keep my house so cold, when my Grandsons visit I give each of them one of my shawls to wrap up in (usually in ADDITION to their coats!). The last time the boys were here, Nick (the youngest) asked me if I would knit him his own wrap to keep. Of course, I said yes.
Then, like I always do, I forgot all about it.
At least I forgot about it until two weeks ago.
That's when Nick called me to ask how his 'man shawl' was coming along.
So I got out my bulkiest home-spun yarn ~ a Shetland - Mohair blend 2 plied with fawn (taupe) and light musket (off white). I used a size 11 needle and whipped up this puppy as quickly as I could!
It has a seed stitched border and stockinett stitch body. Nick wanted it blue so I died it blue in my Turkey Roaster! I think it turned out pretty nice.
I hope my little man likes it!
