What Would Miss Marple Knit?

Reminder that on Friday, February 11th, from 7 pm to 9 pm Yarns With A Twist will host "What Would Miss Marple Knit?". Kai ce Burton has obtained a copy of "Murder at the Vicarage", so please join us that evening to sit, knit and listen to this Miss Marple mystery. For those that would like to knit the "Miss Marple Shawl", the September/October 2010 issue of Piecework includes this vintage shawl pattern originally published in Weldon's Practical Needlework Shawls in Knitting and Crochet. If you don't want to knit this shawl, but would prefer to work on a current project, bring it along and join us for a fun evening. Refreshments will be served.

Barb W. knit her shawl (top and right) using the new Cascade 220 Sport and size 8 circular needles. According to the pattern, the finished shawl is a square. To wear it is then folded in half to a double layer triangle. Barb chose to only knit half of the pattern, resulting in a single layer triangle. Only 7 skeins of the Cascade Sport yarn were used and the finished size at the top is 72" wide. The Cascade 220 sport is a new yarn and there is still a wide selection of colors available. This shawl will be on display at Yarns With A Twist.
