Cairo Shawl

A lot is going on in my house 
at the moment.
Not to mention that we are actually moving 
to Egypt for a while,
I have been working
to finish the Cairo Shawl pattern.
At the same time
I have been concentrating on a larger
embroidery project.
Until this project is finished,
knitting is put on hold.

the Cairo Shawl has just been test knitted
and can now be bought 
at Etsy and at Ravelry.
At Ravelry it will be automatically downloaded
after it is purchased,
and on Etsy it will be emailed to you
manually by myself.

This shawl is pretty much straight forward.
I worked on it watching TV.
After a few inches, 
the patterns is easy to memorize. 

I used Heritage Hand Painted Sock Yarn 
from Cascade.
I really like this yarn,
and have used it in the Bestemor Shawl also.
It make the shawl nice and cozy
and give it a little weight.
The shawl has a good size,
personally I like a shawl 
to be on the large side.
