This past Thursday, besides it being St. Patrick’s Day, the day also marked the 85th birthday of my husband’s grandmother, Ann. As a lover of Ireland and all things green, I felt it would be very appropriate to knit her something that reflected the rich green fields of Ireland.
I found this shawl pattern on Ravelry, (of course!). It was an easy and unbelievably quick knit. I stated and finished the shawl in one day!
The pattern is called Easy-Knit Shawl and was created by Kathy North. The pattern can be found here: http://www.piece-by-piece.net/Knit/easy_knit_shawl.htm

Grandma Ann was very impressed to get a handmade shawl and plans to wear it on her trip you Whales this summer.
