2011 Thing a Week - Week 25 - Shawl for Anna

My good friend Anna was married on Saturday and I had knit her a shawl to remember her day. I also knit her a garter that I gave her a few weeks ago, but I never took a picture of it. Oops!

The shawl is Dottie. It's not exactly a straight-forward pattern, and I had to go and look at other finished projects a few times, but it was actually pretty easy. Since the directions are not written step by step and you have to do a bit of figuring out, you memorize the pattern and understand what comes next, so it makes it easy to just knit along and only look at the pattern periodically.

Look, I am elegant with my wine.
I just think this picture is adorable. Anna will probably hate it. Sorry!
