Impulse Shawlette

This is made from some hand-dyed alpaca that I picked up at the Cranberry Festival in Stone Lake a few years ago.  It was so homegrown, I never entered it into my Ravelry Stash.  We took an impulsive trip to Hayward this weekend for a Friday Night Fish Fry and a family boondoggle.

On my way out the door I grabbed a simple pattern and this skein of yarn (about 220 yards, I'm guessing - DK weight).  I started this on the car ride on Friday night...

...and I finished on Sunday night watching some Wild hockey.

 (HOW ABOUT THOSE WILD?)

The yarn is pretty hairy, but I love this closeup:


 This is the Garter Ridge Shawl - easy peasy.

Comments:
Very pretty indeed!! Looks cozy. :)
 
damn, girl - you nailed it! How do you do it so fast? I suppose the car ride to and from help.
 
What yarn store? Needle in the Pines (is that what it's called?)
