belated wishes

My mom just receieved her rather late Mother's Day gift!
I have been working on it for awhile and it took me a little longer than intended to finish it off and get it out the door.
I used the pattern Simple Yet Effective Shawl from Cosmicpluto knits.
Instead of knitting it in the Noro Kureyon sock yarn, I used the Noro Silk Garden sock yarn. I really liked the feel and colour of the yarn. The pattern calls for one ball of Kureyon but I used two balls of the silk garden. The shawl turned out great, was a little smaller than I would have liked but will still be very useful in warding off the chills when needed.
Hope you enjoy it Mom! I love you!

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Don't you just love moses baskets for new babies. Ours was a gift from my husband's parents when we were having Nipper 3 years ago.
This is a beautiful shawl. I hope your mum really liked it.

Thanks for the wonderfuly compliments on Shalom!

What a lovely shawl you have there! I made a shawl for my mom this Mother's Day too, and I almost chose this pattern before I went with the Textured Shawl. Next time, I'll try this one out. :-)
