Deirdre Beloved

While visiting the in-laws at Christmas time, I knit up a pretty little shawl out of two skeins of Koigu KPPPM that had been marinating in the stash for far too long. I basically knit Linden Down's Deirdre, but I fully admit to not really following the pattern at all. It's a Deirdre in spirit, anyway.

It's a great little shawlette and gets lots of wear when I'm walking the dog. It usually makes the last third of the walk in my pocket because I'm always too warm (I've been known to got out in my rain jacket, hat, mitts, and shawl, and come back with all my knits in my pockets and my jacket half open - I've got thick Canadian blood and winter is my bitch), and I love that it's small enough that I can tuck it away when I don't want to wear it anymore.
