Smiley Shawl

IMG_9416

I started a Pamuya shawl for my mom yesterday. I got this yarn at MDSW in May, specifically for this pattern.  The yarn is Brooks Farm Solo Silk – the same yarn I used for Karen’s Cedar Leaf Shawlette, just a different colorway.  The Pamuya pattern is written for fingering weight yarn and this is a bit bigger (the label says “sport”), so I increased my needle size to US 6.  So far, so good!

This pattern is essentially a sampler.  If you look closely, you can see I’ve just begun the first section of what the designer calls “tiny cross pattern”IMG_9418 I was thinking of taking this along to Portland as my airplane knitting project, but I can find something that will take up less space instead.
