I made this comfort shawl this week.

I tried to drape it so that the pattern would show up in the picture.  As you can see by the lighting, the color was not true.   The bottom pic shows a more accurate color.  (thanks to the daylight coming in through the front door)

I used Simply Soft yarn by Caron, and used two strands together for the pattern.  I had started this shawl using just the one strand, and the pattern was coming out well; but I could see that it would take me so much longer, that I doubled up the yarn and went with that.  This was an easy pattern to work with.  on the lower right I added my little traditional cross charm.

My only problem is when I spot something of interest on TV while I am knitting, or my husband asks me some question that makes me lose track.   It's inevitable, I guess.
