Mininie Shawl in Sherbert-y colors

Yarn:  Homespun by Susan Sloan
Purchased: Fuzzy Farmers Market (I can't remember how much it was).
Pattern:  Minnie Shawl by Jumper Cables Knitting Annie Lee

I bought some homespun yarn spun from local sheep at the local farmer's market.  The yarn was spun by Susan Sloan and I'm going to assume she has her own sheep.  It didn't have a "weight' of the yarn on the label...so in my little brain when I started this project, I was treating it as a sport weight yarn and started following Annie Lee's pattern "Minnie" for lighter weight yarns. http://jumpercablesknitting.com/2011/12/30/minnie-sport-weight/

Then at some point while I was knitting it, I shifted into treating it as a the heavier weight yarn.  I've got both patterns memorized.  When I got to the end, I finished it as if it was this pattern:   


Long story short...this is why the ends of the scarf are different.  Call it a boo boo? Call it creative license?  I'm not going to obsess over it.   Next project!  Move along!! 

The yarn reminds me of a bowl of sherbert which considering the heat right now sounds really good :)

Thanks Kathy...if you are on Ravelry Annie (Jumper Cable knitting) has several free patterns as well as patterns to buy. I like her stuff because most of them are easy to remember patterns that you can stuff in a purse or bag and take with you :)
