TGV…what is that?

Funny you should ask…it’s the coolest, most quick knit you’ve ever done. I’m having so much fun knitting this. In fact, my work projects have taken a back seat. It’s knit top down and has two sections; garter and rib with only ONE pattern.

I’m using fingering weight yarn, Skeindalous, with a looooong color change. It’s her Betty Sock. This was the perfect choice for this shawl. Though, a fingering weight self-striping would be awesome too.

Oh! I’ll have to knit this again with self-striping yarn.

It’s the perfect take-along project. Planes, trains and automobiles. Not to mention the dentist office while waiting to be a DD for a friend, knitting group so you can chat away, or just plain I-really-don’t-want-to-focus-on-anything-today kind of project.

All around Super fun!

The pattern is called TGV (Tricot grande vitesse–High speed knitting). It’s a pay-for pattern, but oh-so worth it! The designer is Susan Ashcroft. You might want to hang out a bit on her Ravelry page. She has some fun knits.

Glad I could enable you. But knitters, I MUST get back to work!

So, as I always say,
Knit On!
