Comfort Shawl

As promised, here is the progress to date on my handspun Feather and Fan Comfort Shawl. This is so much fun to knit. It is about 4 feet across the top, so not too much futher to go. Using up much of my too-small-for-a-project skeins satisfies my innate yankee frugality. For some reason it is really hard for me to have hard-won handspun just sitting unknitted. I have no such problem with store bought yarn though - odd no? Happy weekend to all.

Oh, it's just fantastic! You make me want to make another one. I've got a bunch of odd balls of two ply handspun sitting here, waiting for a project.

So lovely. And you are right, the work and then the usefulness of the small amounts. So New Englander of you.

That's really pretty. I love the colors, and feather and fan is a favorite pattern of mine. A classic never goes out of style.

Those colors are really working together! So often the odds and ends projects wind up looking kind of blah because the colors really clash, but this one looks terrific.

It's lovely Erin! And I suspect it will always have a special place in your heart since it's your handspun too!

Oh yum, that is beautiful. What a great idea for those little skeins of hanspun. I may try something like this--thanks for the brilliant idea (and your carding is divine and totally inspiring)!

Wow, I have to admit I had some doubts about this shawl, I'm not really a shawl lover, but I really, really like it. I want to see more!
