Off the needles

I have been wanting to use that phrase for so long and now I can!!! Hooray!!!! I mentioned this project a while back, and am now finally able to share the finished product with you. I intended for it to be a Mother's Day gift for my mom, but alas, it turned out to be more of a Happy Beginning of Fall present. Shouldn't there be such a day, after all? It is the Simple Yet Effective Shawl, a free pattern from cosmicpluto knits!

This was the first time I have ever blocked anything and it turned out just fine, but it didn't stretch out as much as I had hoped. Regardless, my mother wears it well and I love her stylish touch of adding a pin to secure the shawl around her shoulders. Hopefully it will be an added touch of warmth on those cool nights to come. Happy Fall, Mom!
