Introducing the Ilwaco Shawlette

I had so much fun knitting this delightful little shawl.  It is soft and bouncy and wavy and I just can’t quite tell you how much I love it.  I love it so much, I’m running a KAL for it.  We will be running an in-store KAL at BlackSheep at Orenco on Mondays from 4:30-6:30pm in August and September.  I’m also running a KAL on the Kelli Slack Designs forum.  So, feel free to join in on the fun!

The Ilwaco shawlette is named for the tiny town of Ilwaco in Washington. In that tiny town is a tiny yarn shop. From that tiny yarn shop you can watch the waves dance. The thought of the surf bouncing against the docks and breaking against the shore inspired this little shawlette. As you knit you will see the surf form in the center of the shawl and the waves break in the edge as it beats against the shore. If you love the sea (or in my case the thought of the sea), you might just love this shawl.
