fountain pen shawl Review by sharon hartung

i am an experienced knitter and i really enjoyed knitting the fountain pen shawl. the pattern was very interesting, and not too difficult. i knitted it in the same deep purple as the model and am very pleased with the finished product. i plan to wear it often this fall and winter. thank you!
