Keeping up with the fashion trends...

In the knitting world the buzz has been the lovely Princess Kate and her shawl...
What a wonderfully modern Princess, picking up those last minute items for the Prince's dinner!  

People have been trying to come up with a shawl pattern that will replicate the one HRH has on. I think this is close. Not cashmere - are you kidding, not for this Montana girl anyway.  The shawl is in a different color - I wanted to be able to wear it with anything. I’d never knit with the natural marl colorway but do love the natural, earthy color. This would be absolutely the best project for a car trip or a conference knit, even the pleats are easy once the pattern is set in the first row. This combines two of my favorite things, knitting and shopping!
 Pattern: The Milk Run Shawl, by Cat Wong
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool
Colorway: Natural Marl
Amount: 4 skeins
Needle size: US 7

Hubby has been at Melita Island for the annual work session. I've been home, warm, dry, and knitting. (We know who got the better deal, don't we gals?) When he gets home I'll have him take a modeled photo.
