I've just started knitting a shawl using the handspun from the blending board rolags I created. I found this free pattern, Prism Shawl by Tanis Lavallee, on Ravelry. I want to knit something I could do while talking and visiting, something pretty mindless. This fit the bill and it's pretty. Random stripes of stockinette stitch, purl stitch rows and then a lace row thrown in every once in a while. I'll decide what goes where as I'm knitting - love it. The only time I'll need to read a graph is for the border at the very end of the shawl.
