FO: Multnomah

Hello! How are you?  I hope you have all had a wonderful summer. I love summer!

There hasn't been much knitting for me during the nice season, except I did a KAL: Le KAL de l'été (the Summer KAL in French) which was organized by Colorista.  Colorista is a new local hand dyer and she creates colorways that are definitely beautiful. They look so cozy. I knit my daughter's Peppa Scarf last winter with it and I look forward to knit with her yarns again.

This being said, the KAL was for fun and we didn't need to use Colorista yarn to participate. So, I used some yarn that I had in my stash. I really want to empty my stash, if that is possible, and never buy again any yarn that I am not going to knit right away. That's me!  I think it is possible, as you can see...

And the pattern I chose has been in my queue for years. It is Multnomah. It is a very easy pattern to follow. I haven't made any mods, except I knitted it with light fingering with the exact gauge. I also chose this pattern because it is a very small shawl (the project for the KAL needed to be a shawl) and honestly, I was not sure that I could knit a shawl in two months (July and August). So, it was realistic and I made it.  I was glad that I was on vacation at the end of August though :)

So enough said, here are some pictures...

I wish you all have a great Fall! Happy knitting!
