I had some fluffy yarn on hand in a neutral color. And I wanted to do something extra for Mary Jo just before the wedding between Mary Jo and my brother, Greg. I used a pattern that is in my drop box files called Lala's Simple Shawl and the yarn that I had on hand.
I am sorry that I didn't get a photo of it finished....however, it was a particularly easy pattern and worked up very quickly. You just keep knitting until it is big enough. I am thinking that I probably used size 10 needles.
