First I want to thank all of you who visited my blog and left such nice comments. That is so encouraging. I'll try to answer a couple of the questions that were left. The Shapely Shawlette is a purchased pattern. It is "Simply Garter - A Shapely Shawlette" and the designer is Judy Pascale. I am knitting this with Koigu Painter's Palette Merino. The ribbon scarf being knitted with the square needles is just the basic drop stitch pattern. I am knitting 4 rows, then knitting the next row wrapping each stitch twice. Then I knit a row dropping the wraps.
