Knitting F.O: Color Affection Shawl

It's done, done, done! I am so pleased with my Color Affection shawl and I think it's my favorite knitted item yet.

This was made with Plucky Knitter yarn in the Plucky Feet base. Colorways are: Bashful, Vanity, and Vignette.




You can see from the sheer beauty of the shawl's design, why the
pattern is consistently in the top 20 patterns downloaded on
Ravelry. But beyond that, it's a deceptively simple knit. Almost all garter stitch, the only other skills you need are to be able to do a wrap-and turn for short rows, M1R (make 1 right) and M1L (make 1 left), and how to add a new color to your work. I had already learned to do the make 1's on other projects, but there are some very good videos on YouTube that can quickly show you the stitches.

So if you're a beginning knitter, with maybe 1 or 2 small projects under your belt, I highly recommend giving this shawl pattern a try...the hardest part will be picking out your yarn colors, I promise!
