Dragonfly's Path

Cathy and Sarah are having fun at the cottage. Cathy has been busy knitting and finished the Dragonfly's Path Shawl (pattern purchased on Ravelry). They had a great photo shoot today with Sarah's husband John taking the pictures.
The shawl is beautiful.
The pattern was a pleasure to knit, especially the border with the I-cord edging. 
Cathy used 2 skeins of Life in the Long Grass Sock.
I really like the LITLG yarn and will definitely knit with it again.  

Dragonfly’s Path is a crescent-shaped shawl with long ends to warm your shoulders or wrap around your neck as a scarf. 
The body of the shawl is squishy garter stitch, finishing with a simple purl ridge. The edging reminds me of a dragonfly flitting along the shore of a lake. The dragonfly (a pretty cable) meanders back and forth across a garter-stitch background, creating a softly scalloped edge along the way. 
Enjoy yourself as you follow your little dragonfly’s adventure! 
Fully written instructions are provided, along with three optional charts.
