4 + 3 = 1

No its not new math.  Its knit math.  Really.
 4 skeins of Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed Aran 
plus 3 days of knitting 
equals 1 Boneyard Shawl.
See 4 plus 3 does equal 1.
Boneyard Shawl is a lovely simple little free shawl pattern by Stephen West.
I used a size US 10 needle which gave just the right amount of drape
while still keeping the squish factor. 
It was so easy to knit and knit so fast that I had to stick it in there 
between the lace shrug and the cable baby bunting I'm making, 
for a little instant gratification.  
As instant as one can get in 3 days.  Instant for knitting. 
This was my first West knit but it won't be my last!
I really like Stephen West designs and have a few queued up.
The hard part will be which one to pick first or is it second?
