Newly Finished Shawlette

I just finished knitting the Clover Bud Shawlette found in the book Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders. I like the pattern because I could easily keep my place and there wasn't too much garter stitch.

The pattern called for 5 repeats of the lace pattern, but I did 6 because I still had a lot of yarn after I finished 5. I used Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga - love that stuff! The colorway is Stitticus Jumping Spider.

I love how the color moves from dark red, to purple/pink, to almost tan/browny bits. I added triangular glass beads on the bind- off edge. This pattern would be a great quick knit for gift-giving!
