Simple Yet Effective

Yep, its another birthday present for my mom! I saw this on the Thursday before her birthday, and ran out to find a skein of Noro Kureyon sock yarn. I found this colorway at Mew Mew’s yarn shop (the store is named after the owner’s cat – I met the cat!) in Louisville and though it would work up beautifully.

Even though I would never use this yarn for socks, it sure did work out really well for a small shawl. It knit up oh, so quick too! Laura gets an A+ for the most accurate pattern name (not to mention beautifully, easy pattern). My mom loved it, and I hope she wears it lots as the colder weather sets in. She even allowed me to take a few pictures of it on….
