Knitting News From The North.

Despite July's 'stay inside  -  good for knitting weather  -  there seems to be a lack of trailer  knitting production this year.  But  this week, I did finish my little Talbot Trail Shawl.

Both yarn and pattern were purchased last summer in St. Thomas at Little Red Mitten.  Only a year on the shelf!   Not the longest shelf life!

This pattern is one of a three shawl series designed by http://littleredmitten.ca/ Little Red Mitten's owner, Joan Janes.

  I chose Berroco's Mettalic Sox yarn for mine and it has produced a bright and cheerful piece.

  The shape is crescent shaped.
Achieved by an outer edge increase on every row and a centre increase on every other row.

This should brighten a dark winter coat or nicely accesorize  a winter sweater. In fact I wear it as I write this -another cool summer's day. Happy summer everyone.
