The Summer Sampler Takes Flight

......or at least I enjoyed the lovely breezes for our photo shoot together!

.....and the views!

This has been a wonderful bit of fun and learning. Thanks to the internet, I finally learned to both knit AND purl backwards for the edging of this shawl. I had LOTS of practice on the edging and feel rather proficient at it now :-).

Thanks, Ms. Bad Cat for another wonderful design!
