I finished my Elizabeth Zimmerman 100th Anniversary Camping Shawl. I just loved this pattern and I am very happy to have something girly in my wardrobe. This is a free pattern and it was such a joy to knit. Each pattern stitch represents a special part of EZ's camping experiences.
The pattern is by Mwaa Knit and she explains the patterns as follows,
The Paw Prints in the center of the shawl honour KLINE and all our furry companions.
The Slanting Twigs in the next ring represent a walk in the forest with sun shining through the trees.
The Willow Leaves in the outer ring celebrate the beauty of everything growing and green.
The Waves and Droplets edging represents water lapping at the edge of the lake or river, and rolling back across the sand and rocks.
I used Miss Babs yarn that I purchased at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. The colors are Jane Austin and Sugar. I love how the worked together. The pattern calls for a solid color, but I didn't have enough of one color for this pattern so I used the color combo and I am happy how it came out. Now I can go camping!!!
