Helpful

I'm teaching two classes this weekend - crocheted socks tomorrow night and my Tunisian Treasure Shawl on Sunday. Before teaching a class, I always make a sample to double (or triple) check the pattern and make sure I remember all the steps. I was also curious how this shawl would look in a multi-color yarn, so . . . I grabbed some leftovers and made this. It looks better in real-life than in this nighttime shot; I'm definitely tempted to make this a full shawl rather than just a sample.

Little Miss Helpful had to check it out too,
with a sniff, a pounce and an (ultimately unsuccessful) attempt to carry off a new play toy. I keep telling myself I'm going to miss her kitten playfulness when she grows up. Maybe with everything except my yarn projects.
