Sheep Shawl

I ordered this book sight unseen:
Vogue Knitting on the Go: Shawls
for one item only - the sheep shawl. I had to make it!

I toyed with yarn.... Bouclé? Something bulky and crinkly?

Then I found... IT.

Lion Brand Sasha. I think it's new? I hadn't seen it before, but it's PERFECT!

It knits up just like a persian lamb. I got the box last night, and have already knit 2 1/2 heads! I'm using size 10 needles, and adapting the pattern freely.

I love this pattern!

Clever blog name. :-)

That shawl is hilarious! Did you finish it? Wear it to work?
