Tiara Shawl 1My latest FO is from the ultimate souvenir skein — the One Hank Tiara Shawl, made in Tiara by HiKoo.  This beautiful yarn is soft and luxurious, featuring a blend of wool, mohair, nylon, and acrylic. . . with beads and sequins twisted in.  That’s right, beads and sequins are already in the yarn!  Even better. . . this sweet shawl pattern takes just one ball, and the pattern is on the label.  No paper to carry, no website to misplace.  Everything you need to make this elegant accessory is right there in (and around) the skein.  Stop in to see the gorgeous project and colors in person!

I whipped this one up in just a day of knitting, while catching up with my new favorite show — Vikings on the History Channel.  Amazing clothing, and lots of weaving!  What do you watch (or listen to) while you knit?  Let us know in the comments!
