You never know...

A little over a week ago I walked into Brown Sugar Roastery for a cup of coffee for the road.  I was wearing the sweater shawl I knit this winter.  The proprietor saw me wearing it, and she couldn't get over how nicely in lay over my back and shoulders, and the "sleeves" tied in front. She loved it! Right on the spot, she commissioned me to knit one for her.  I said I'd do it.

I decided to make hers in cotton, so she wouldn't  have any trouble washing it (or blocking it).  I picked out these variations in blues in Araucania Yarn, called Patagonia.  I needed 800 yds., and this yarn was on sale at 50% off.  Yippee.  So, it's time to get some of these skeins wound into balls and get started!

 I'm thinking I might want to eventually make myself a cotton version of this sweater shawl. 


  1. Can't wait to see it.
    Love the blue.
    Today will be a good day to throw on a newly split log and curl up and knit.

  2. The yarn will make a nice sweater shawl.

    We missed you at knitting last night.

  3. Wow! That's a great compliment to your knitting skills.

    The color you chose for her sweater is beautiful.

  4. Wait!! what sweater shawl??

    I LOVE The color, too, that you picked for her.
    You are a great knitter when others ASK for your work.
