Blue Skadoo

I needed a new shawl for work - since I'm starting to wear my current shawl out. I work in what is playfully reffered to as a "cube farm" -- which is normally kept at about 68 degrees, even in the summer - making a shawl the perfect cube accessory.
Earlier this year, at my favorite local yarn shop, the Unraveled Sheep, I spotted some yarn that I had to have, Cascade Jewel - in Saphire. When I decided to make it into a shawl/scarf, I wanted to use a pattern that was simple and that really displayed the natural texture of the yarn. I found this pattern in Vogue Stitionary. (Natalie gave me the I and II as part of my Christmas present)

This picture really shows the varigated texture and color that really make this shawl.
I have named this Blue Skadoo - from Blues Clues (which my 15-year old sister Laurie still likes to watch) the Blue Skadoo song is very catchy, and I sometimes find myself singing it out loud at work, much to the annoyance of my co-workers. -

This is so beautiful.

I tried to learn to knit, and did okay, but my granddaughter took apart everything I had done when I wasn't looking!

Happy National Quilting Day! We're having a big celebration over at my blog! You're invited!

So pretty! The stitch you chose works very well with the yarn.
