Looking for a Sock Yarn Shawl

Hi Guys,
I have 475 yards of sock yarn that I got at the Colorado retreat that I think would make a nice shawl. Does anyone know of a pattern that would work with? It's for my 85yo mom and she just wants a shawl instead of a shrug.
Thanks.
Mark

color affection by Veera Valimaki - Done

Well today I finished color affection. Here are a couple of pictures before washing and blocking but you'll get the idea of the finished item. My next project is going to be Stephen West's Chadwick. Hope you're all having a great weekend. It is a glorious fall day in St. Louis. Happy Knitting, JRob

Rhinebeck 2013

Hey All,

Is anyone going to be at Rhinebeck this year? And if so, are there any impromptu men's knit nights planned for the weekend?

Dragon Scale prayer shawl

Just finished a prayer shawl using the Dragon Scale pattern, which was a new stitch for me. Not sure which side is the "right side" as they both look interesting and give the fabric a nice texture.

experience felting?

Hi guys,
Does anybody have experience knitting for felt? I want to make about 180x60cm of felt. Any experience with shrinkage and what stitches felt up best? Is a pattern recognizable after felting? Should it be knit tight or loose?

Cary Grant Learning to Knit in "Mister Lucky"

I'm sitting here joining panels on my Hollywood knit project. As usual, Turner Classic Movies is on TV, and this morning is "Mr. Lucky" starring Cary Grant and Laraine Day (1943). Cary has joined a women's auxiliary that raises funds for the war effort, mostly to get closer to Laraine.
