Summer Flies


































I knit a shawl every year for my birthday this year I started early when I found this wonderful pattern and I just wanted to share it with you:)
There was a knitalong on ravelry and I read every post and took notes which are on my project page here.
It is the most well written detailed pattern and a quick knit.
A great first shawl pattern for anyone.
I knit it with 10 ply worsted plucky mcn on US # 10 needles it can be knit in 2-4 days and you need roughly 400 yards for this project.
If your not on ravelry write me and I will send you my notes happy knitting.Hugs Darcy

What a beautiful shawl!!!! I love the idea that you knit yourself a shawl for your birthday every year. What a fantastic present. I used to knit for everyone else but me, then I decided that I deserve to knit for myself.
Have a wonderful day,
