Colorful Long Ruffle Shawls

Ann Linderhjelm's Long Ruffle Shawl from her Ullcentrum blog and shared on Ravelry is one of my favorite "on the go" projects.  It's an easy knit, drapes nicely, and let's the yarn do the talking in a lovely scarf or shawl.

This winter I've been knitting the shawl with sock yarn on US size 13 needles.  Below are some examples with Noro Silk Garden sock yarn.  One skein makes a shawl.


  I also knit a ruffle shawl in Cascade Heritage Paints sock yarn- this yarn has lots of "life" (springiness) to it- nice to work with.

Speaking of spring, it could show up any time.  This past week is usually the one when I see the first robin of the year, but none appeared in our below zero temps.
