Pattern: Cladonia from Kristen Kapur. I love this shawl from Through the Loops. It feels so nice wrapped around your shoulders. It's going to be hard to give it away but I have officially completed my first Christmas gift for 2011. I'm proud of myself because I'm far ahead of last year. I think I started my knitted gifts in November last year. This year I started at the end of August. I bought the yarn at a local wool festival and held onto it for a little while looking for just the right pattern to make. I'm so glad I have another skein because it's warm and soft and squishy. I don't think this will be the last time I knit this pattern, but looking through Kristen Kapour's designs on Ravelry I think the Nefertem shawl might be the winner for my extra skein.. It was quick & easy and an all around enjoyable knit. It's such a practical shawl too - it goes with anything. I won't tell ya who it's for, but I have to say - I'm a little jealous. My Ravely project.
