Green and Funky Moda Dea Shawl


I knit a shawl a while back in Moda*Dea (I think that is how it is spelled) yarn. It's a yarn you can buy at any craft store. This shawl is really sort of a shawl-ette. It has two ends that you just tie around your shoulders. It's actually pretty warm synthetic. This shawl is knit in two types of novelty yarns, which hide mistakes well. Believe me, there are alot of mistakes in this shawl..haha. Oh well, at least you can't see them very well. There are even a few holes in it, and I don't know how they got there. Acutally yes I do know how they got there. This happened because I had to rip some of the rows out, and then I didn't do something right, so a hole was born. My hair hides it when I wear it, so that makes it all better...lol. Totally garter stitch, it is a funky piece that I sadly do not wear often. It was a learning experience, in which now I know not to buy this yarn ever again, unless someone is just dying to wear it, and they want me to knit them something out of it, which would be highly unlikely. This shawl was about $50 to make, can you believe that? This is one reason I didn't want to give up on it. I tried to buy two yarns that were very similar in color, so I would knit an overall textural piece. It is pretty nonetheless and I am proud of it.
