knit Homestead Shawl pattern by Marsha Ibuki

I recommend this pattern when you what a break, you need to relax and see that something beautiful without too much effort is creating under your fingers Homestead Shawl pattern by Marsha Ibuki. I received so many things as gift most from my Canadian friends and I feel like this shawl with my Leaf Hat is my imaginary trip to Canada - thank you.

I hope you watched video first and you know that it took me a while to knit this shawl but I love final effect and I am still very happy that I managed to knit it and finish it. Things happen and even a bit of frogging needed to be done over here too.
