The Boom Knit Shawl (knit with Premier Yarns Sweet Roll) is the perfect, small project for a Netflix binge. It is all garter stitch, so don’t even *think* about purling. It is basically a two-row pattern and the shaping is just using a KFB (knit front and back) increase and a k2tog decrease. Easy peasy! This is a free pattern on Ravelry.

BOOM KNIT SHAWL – YARN OF CHOICE

I picked up the Premier Yarns Sweet Roll at Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft. I was curious to see how long the colorway was and how it would stripe. One thing I would suggest to Premier Yarns is to show an example of this yarn used in a project on the band. There wasn’t anything to indicate the length of the colorway and how subtle the changes were. It was on sale. I was feeling adventurous. I took a flyer and bought it.

I’LL HAVE WHAT SHE’S HAVING

I get lightheaded when I am surrounded by scrumptuous natural fiber. Sounds come out of my mouth while pawing my way through a yarn store that could bring to mind the “I’ll have what she’s having” scene from When Harry Met Sally. There is nothing that can compare to knitting with a natural fiber that is as soft as a baby’s butt!

YARN SNOBBERY BE DAMNED

That being said, there is a time and place for acrylics. There is nothing more heartbreaking than pouring your love, time and money into knitting a gift out of a yummy wool/alpaca fiber only to find out that the recipient threw the garment in the washer and dryer and now has a very lovingly made and expensive pot holder. Premier Sweet Roll is a really great yarn to use for making a gift for someone who is either anti-wool (it is 100% acrylic) or who you *know* will not hand-wash and dry flat anything. Save the yummy, baby-butt-soft natural fibers for someone who will truly appreciate them.

After digging around on Ravelry, I settled on Boom Knit Shawl. It could be made as big or small as you want. I basically knit until I ran out of yarn. This shawl was made out of one ball of yarn. I LOVE using up every scrap of yarn. It’s so satisfying! (Kind of like when using up all of the ink in a pen or using a pencil down to a nub. I know I can’t be alone in this 😉 ) I was really happy with how it turned out! It has a lovely curve to it and lends itself to throwing around your shoulders.
