Here is a pattern that I wrote up last Spring. I call it my Fall Shawl because of the colors I used in it. All of the yarn isRed Heart Supersaver. I had gone out to the store one afternoon and stopped at a yard sale on my way home. The woman running it has several large totes full of yarn. She told me that she used to do plastic canvas work, but due to an injury she could no longer work at her craft. Needless to say, I took a large quantity of yarn off her hands at a bargain price! Who doesn't love a bargain? And a yarn bargain? It's a win, win.
