Filed under: Knitting 

Project Specs:
Pattern: River by Sharon Miller from Rowan Magazine 38
Yarn: Rowan’s Kidsilk Night in the Starlight color
Needles: US 13 and US 10.5 Denise needles
Pattern Alterations: I used a knitted cast-on with the larger needle size. And then there was the mistake on the other end with only one row of yarn overs.

Wendy seemed to love her shawl. And it was a chilly day in Minnesota, so the shawl turned out to be practical too. Once the shawl was draped over her shoulders, you couldn’t even notice the mistakes. I did redo the donut with skinnier elastic and that worked out better. And there is enough yarn leftover that I could make something for myself sometime. Maybe a sparkly little scarf?

Best of all, Wide Load Ma’am had a little reunion and the shawl got to rock out!
