The Dummy Clap Shawl (knitted version)

A short post before I leave for work…..
This pattern is easy and looks more complicated that it is. I was looking for a fairly simple project to occupy me and while blog reading, (because if you can’t knit, crochet or spin you can still read about it), I ran across this on the Knitting Up A Storm blog, from Anna Peck.
Give it a look! This is a great step by step tutorial, enjoy and thanks Anna!!
In the process of going through my stash, I started dyeing up some yarn to work with for this pattern, I had the idea of making the skeins painted in random light to dark mix. I started with two skeins and decided to dye 4.
Hey, new rule, if I work two jobs, I get to wear my PJs when I’m off.

I’m using a larger needle size 13 to get a lacy effect, and relaxing in the process. Everything is better with knitting. (I think this could be a beer commercial *grin*)
