Pretty much everyone at my local yarn shop is making (or has made) a Color Affection shawl this summer. I decided to join in the fad and bought a kit with 3 different purples. Lots of garter stitch later (and becoming quite tired of the color purple), I have my first finished shawl!





Thanks for looking!

I am going to have to get to the yarn shop and check it out!  I love it!

Your knitting is fabulous!

It is a really nice mix of the same colors...as long as the skeins changed, I don't think I would get bored. Cheesy

It must be good karma!
I've just been given some purple yarn - only one ball however.
While I try to find more purple yarn, where can I find the pattern for a Color Affection shawl?

Thanks.

It's a pattern on Ravelry, and can be found here. It costs 3.90 euros, which is currently about $5.00.

I saw two versions of this shawl made up at our LYS...it is a lovely shawl!  They were taking about how great your shawl turned out, indigo_roses...I knew exactly who they were talking about as they kept mention your three purples! Cheesy
