Northern Lights Shawl was the project I took with me to knit on my trip to Eastern Europe. It was the perfect travel project as it only took one ball of fingering weight yarn. The pattern was easy to remember-luckily, because I left my pattern on the plane to London. I continued in the sequence I was doing and it worked out well. I worked an extra repeat plus a few more rows to use up all the yarn and complete the color sequence. My great grand daughter loves this shawl! (So do I. Just looking at it makes me smile) It was fun to knit to watch the colors emerge from the ball of yarn. I think the colors and feel of this yarn equal Noro and, but I only had one knot in this whole ball and it tied together ends of the same color. Also this was spun much more evenly.
Yarn: Kauni Wool.
Pattern: Revontuli-huivi (Northern Lights) a free download on Ravelry.
Needles: Size 7. The pattern recommended size 9, but that produced too loose a knit for me.

Another fun knit which was fairly easy and produced a beautiful shawl.
Pattern: Haruni, free Ravelry download.
Yarn: Knit Picks Bare, Superwash Merino/Nylon Fingering. 1 skein.
