"Gonna Try With A Little Help From My Friends"

"What would you do if I sang out of tune, would you stand up and walk out on me?"  Okay, start humming and you'll have the Beatles tune stuck in your head.

I've been asked to design a shawl for the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl which takes place this September.  When handed a lovely skein of Malabrigo Sock, the design just flew off my needles.  I've written it up and have plans to photograph it in Boston next week with my "model" who will be on vacation.

Anyway, I'm hoping for a little help from my friends as I'd love a couple of test knits before it is released.  It calls for one skein of fingering weight yarn and it is a relatively quick knit.  I can't pay you and I don't have yarn to give you BUT if you have some yarn in your stash and are willing to lend some help to a friend, send me a PM on Ravelry or contact me through the profile button on the sidebar.  I'll email you the pattern and when it is released, you will get a final copy and I'll gift you any pattern you choose from my Ravelry store.

Here's a little peek of the edging - not a great photo but it gives you an idea of how it looks.

"Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends."

Very pretty! It looks lightweight and I love the color.

I would love to try to help you with this. I've composed an email to you under your Profile but cannot seem to send it. Any thoughts?

I also really like the idea "help from your friends" and also have to say "Thanks" - now the tune is stuck in my head. :)

A shawl for the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl - what an interesting name for an event. I've not heard of it before. One day, here in your blog, would you do a write up giving particulars. Thanks. I'll also try to search online.
