Today I have a new pattern for all my knitters out there. It's a very simple pattern that creates a gorgeous, warm shawl, just in time for the cold weather. I actually finished this last year but only got the chance to write it up and put it up now. Here it is, the "Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf". Thanks to my friend Johanna P. for modeling this at work about a year ago!! The pattern has also been added to Ravelry here.
Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf
friend of mine saw a shawl similar to this somewhere and asked me to
recreate it. I did my best to imitate the look of the shawl, but I
cannot for sure say that it’s the same shawl. I thought I’d share the
pattern with anyone who might be interested in a light but warm shawl
made by striping thin cotton yarn with bulky single ply wool yarn.
Because of the lightness of the bulky wool, this shawl can also be worn
as a scarf by wrapping it around your neck. The finished product is
classy and elegant for very little wor…
Nurse Sheila was my night nurse, and she was extremely patient with me when I struggled to learn how to breastfeed Andrew while he was crying up a storm. She and nurse Della put up with my numerous requests for more and more ice. This scarf is for her.

I came up with this pattern during the winter, when I was wishing for spring to come. I had bought some Shimmer yarn and mixed it with KnitPicks Shadow Lace yarn, so I wanted to make something nice with it. Here is what I came up with. It's pretty basic, but hey, it worked! I made two versions of it: one in green, and one in purple.
