Finished Object- Multnomah Shawl

This one I made for myself. I’ve knit four of these for other women in my family. My goal is to knit one for all of them women in my family.

Whoops

I finished this a couple of days ago, but it’s been blocking until today, when I dragged Richie outside and made him take photos

I am loving these bright colors all the way. Usually when I knit for myself the colors are pretty dark- not quite sure why. So I’m trying to knit with more colors

Off to finish the Dragon’s Hope Shawl and watch Bake Off!

 

(Yes, I realize I still need to finish my Bake Off challenge but we haven’t been grocery shopping in a couple of weeks. I’ll get there)

Multnomah Shawl

I’ve made two of these. I was going through my old posts to find the one I made for Aunt Sheree for Christmas to link in this post when I realized I didn’t write a post for that.

So this will be an all inclusive Multnomah Shawl post.

I found this pattern by accident. I was working on a Cascade pattern that just wasn’t working out. The math in the pattern wasn’t adding up. When the two knitting ninjas (Kara and Joelle) told me it was the pattern, not me, I felt better and broke up with Cascade. Kara recommended the Multnomah because it was easy. Garter stitch and then feather and fan at the bottom. I was a little intimidated, but once I got going, it proved to be very simple. I don’t think I can thank Kara enough for that.

I’m pleased that the shawls fit them, and that they both loved them. They are two great people to knit for because they are so appreciative of what I make for them. And that’s such a great feeling. Love you both!
