I mentioned that I was knitting a shawl while I had guests from Canada. I used left over Briggs and Little fingering weight wool and edged it with some old Kroy sock yarn that had been hanging around for years. I used a 5mm needle. In all, I used about 350 gms of wool. It is a square of 64 inches. I finished it off with a variation of MMario's. I did a few rows of YOK2tog and on the last row I knit and purled into each of the YO's. I then did his stretchy bind off. On the shawl itself, I did YOK2tog every tenth row to add some interest. I blocked it yesterday and a niece immediately claimed it. It is a good size and when opened more than covers a double bed. I really like these shawls as I can chat, watch soccer games, movies, etc. while doing them and they are warm and useful. I spent about 2 weeks of on and off knitting.
