Leap Into Spring KAL/CAL Winner!

Sedna's Shawl Knitted PatternI completed my own KAL project for the Leap into Spring KAL/CAL. I made Sedna’s Shawl by Mary Lena Lynx, a cotton triangular shawl with a crocheted lace border. I was excited about this shawl when I first saw it because I wanted something in cotton suitable for our Mediterranean summer beach weekends. I always manage to feel chilled after a day in the water. I also like these kinds of wraps for tying around my waist as a casual beach cover-up. So this is an item I’ll get plenty of use out of during the spring and summer to come.Sedna's Knitted Shawl PatternRather than striping two different colors, I found a variagated cotton I’ve had stashed for awhile and wanted to use – Elann Sonata. Sedna's Casual Cotton Shawl Knit PatternIt made for a simple knit. The crocheted border worked up quickly and I think is such a pretty addition to this casual wrap!

But, enough about my project. The participants in our Ravelry Group really came up with some gorgeous projects for this KAL/CAL! You can see the lovely finished objects in our contest thread.

    You’ve got to be kidding me! I can’t believe I won. That is just so hilarious because I got material ironed last night so I could cut out a leaf bag and put it together today. I guess I don’t need to now. :)

      Believe it, Jennifer! Well, now you can sew your leaf bag and use it for a swap or something! :-D

    Thank you so much for posting your beautiful shawl. I have several 10 packs of Elan Sonata in my stash for years and have never found anything suitable for the beautiful colors, until now. I will be making a Sonata shawl.

      How great, Sheri! So glad I could help you stashbust! Since you have the benefit of my experience, I’d share that if I had it to do again, (which I do because I have another bag of it and my sister needs one of these shawls!), I’d use a size or two larger needles – maybe 7’s or 8’s. The fabric was a little stiff, although it blocked out nicely.
