FO Friday- purple French cancan shawl

Good morning! It’s an exciting day in these parts…we have a newly minted six year old!

She is an amazingly sweet, thoughtful, smart, stubborn, decisive, gorgeous little ball of pink. And I love her so :).

In knitting news, I have a finished project to share that just came off the blocking wires! A purple bamboo French Cancan shawl that was custom ordered by a friend of the family after seeing my green cancan.

Isn’t she a beauty?!

4 full balls of Sidar snuggly baby bamboo DK. Such a great bamboo/wool mix, I’ve used it numerous times and have always been happy with the end product.

Knit on 4 mm needles, the garter stitch is squishy and the lace/cables have great definition

This is a project you are going to want right next to your skin. So soft and pretty!
