Well, I had started a shawl with the Magic Ball yarn and FROGGED (see previous posts). I then started a lovely SS shawl with LanaLoft in Orange Confection and was thrilled to learn that the reason my YOs don't look the same on either side is because of curling and that it will correct itself with washing and blocking. Well, Ms. Madeline (my 3 yo) decided that she wanted a shawl too. So, I rummaged through my stash to find some inexpensive yarn that could hold up to a 3 yo and have colors befitting a princess. I found some skeins of Bernat Satin Sport in Meadow colorway and decided to knit her a garter st triangular shawl. I'm using the Alpaca Prayer Shawl Pattern from Ravelry with a few obvious modifications. It is knitting up so cute and will look great on her. Plus anything with pink in it is a winner! I'm finding the pattern is so easy and mindless that it makes a great project to work on while watching TV or at knitting group. She's so excited about this! I only have a wee bit finished, but you get the idea. I think I may use the same pattern with my Magic Ball yarn - it's simple enough to be mindless and showcase the intricacy of the yarn.
