Another Gorgeous Scrumble Shawl

Nanna says she’s really happy with her snuggly scrumble shawl. We knew it would be blue! (And purple. And a bit of bright green.) When she wore her shawl to church, Nanna says, lots of people admired it! That made her happy! She says she’ll take orders, if anyone wants her to knit one for them. It’s not to everyone’s tastes, says Nanna, but if you like big and bold and totally unique, scrumbles are great! And if you get tired of it, you can make it into a carry bag and even felt it.

Nanna says she’s still working on 3 garments: the Jump for Joy jersey just needs its sleeves to be finished, the Asian Inspired jacket’s ready to be sewn up, and the Chunky knit-in-one-piece cardi is about one-third done. She says she’d be done by now if we’d left her in peace for just a couple of hours while she stayed with us!
