...I know I promised to write up the pattern for the little shawlette that I wore with my Easter dress...so here ya go...
...and a back view...
...I had bought a little box of Sirdar Snowflake yarn at a Church Basement Sale before we left North Dakota...the top of the little booklet says $2.50...so I may have paid that much for it...but it seems unlikely...probably more like $1.00...but I don't really remember...there were 3 balls of yarn in the box with the little pattern booklet...and I planned to make a prayer shawl with it...as it turns out I can make 2 of these little shawlettes with that much yarn...one to keep and one to give...
...here's a photo of the entire shawlette...
