A friend asked me to knit this shawl for her and this is the beginningof the project. A beautiful shawl with pearls and a easy pattern. This is a perfect project for our car trip to Oslo next weekend 🙂 My husbands aunt turned 50 years old in the beginning of April and as a present she is getting is a make over at Jan Thomas Studio. So the whole family is traveling to Oslo next weekend to support her. 

The pattern for this shawl was in one of the Norwegian family magazines around Easter. I am using needles size  3,25 and shetlandsuld from our net shop.

I have invited some friends over for knitting on Sunday. Hopefully the weather will be nice so that we can sit outside 🙂 If you also want to come, the door is open 🙂
