Shawls, shawls...

A few days ago I finally finished a shawl that I have been knitting for a few weeks.  I enjoyed working on this piece because I so so so so love the Noro Kureyon Sock yarn I used.  If you don't know Noro, you should.  It knits up in beautiful self-striping colorways, and it's always interesting because you don't really know exactly how your item will come out.  I am donating this shawl to a silent auction for Gina Gibney Dance in NYC.  At their annual Gala this month they will be raising money for a domestic violence organization.  Here's the shawl:  (I used the Multnomah pattern found on Ravelry)

You can see the true colors better in this closeup shot:

A couple of weeks ago I donated a different shawl to an animal shelter in NJ.  It was not made from Noro, but it's nice nonetheless:

I love how you can see Willow peeking at me in this one:

I am leaving the shawls behind and moving on next to make a Baby Surprise Jacket.  It will be my first time knitting this classic pattern and I'll update my blog about my progress as I go along.
