Storm Cloud Shawlette

As stated in an earlier post, I needed a project that I could work on while I was sick. I had no attention span whatsoever, and I was always tired. Most days I was only up for a couple of hours. So I needed a project to fill the gaps when I was awake but couldn't do much at all. Enter a garter stitch shawl with just two rows to remember. Something I could easily put down and pick up in the middle of the row, something I didn't really need to keep track of and could cart around the house with me without having to find my notes or row count.

Pattern: Storm Cloud Shawlette
Yarn: Estelle's Cadenza
Needle Size: 5mm
I ended up running out of yarn because I added an extra increase row thinking that because I had much more yarn than what was called for, I could easily add an extra increase row and use up all my yarn. Well, I used it all up but I was a few rows short on the ruffle..and ended up binding half of it off with some old kidsilk. But it works.
I rarely ever wear blue, and I've had this yarn for over a year now not knowing what to make with it. Hopefully it goes with my complexion.
