I was in Washington DC over the weekend for the national book festival. I ventured out to find Stitch DC, which is a great little yarn and knitting shop, to work on a scarf project. While I’m sitting there I hear someone say my name so I look up and there is Janet! We figured out that we had not seen each other in 24 years. How crazy to just happen to run into one another!!! We had a great time catching up while she was taking a knitting class
This scarf’s name is inspired by Janet’s comment that it was the color of tiger eye. I used a great Italian tweed yard and used a half double crochet stitch through the back loop.
For this shawl, i of course, used no pattern! I started out with just a basic granny stitch that spread out from the center till i thought it was big enough. It measures 54″ at the top (where i did a basic shell stitch) and 29″ down the middle/back of the shawl. I used a merino/linen blend yarn that was really easy to work with.
