Greens and blues

This very easy garter stitch shawl is finally finished. I actually was frustrated with the bouclé yarn as the needle tip kept getting caught in the loops of the bouclé. It would then be a tug of war until I realised I had to give in and reinsert the needle more carefully. Of course, the rows keep getting longer, so towards the end it felt like that never ending project. I love the colourway on this one; it's called Rainforest and the yarn is by the wonderful Canadian company Fleece Artist. The yarn is incredibly soft and will be a very warm shawl for a winter evening in front of the TV.
