For Christmas this year, my friend Christina made up magic yarn cakes for her family of knitters. After blog stalking both C's blog and here sister's blog, I just had to dive into my yarn stash and make my own shawl, buy the pattern, and cast on.
I gathered up leftover blues and creams of sock weight yarn. Followed the double knot method of tying the yarns together and cast on.
I think it turned out nice and springy. I can see myself wearing it in April and May when the weather warms a bit but still requires a little removable warmth.
