365.286 (simple things)

I am pleased as punch with this simple little shawlette, which took exactly one skein of a particularly lovely yarn, was knit in mostly stockinette with some purl-ridged eyelet rows to prevent curling, and is soft and beautiful as all get-out. I might wear it every day until summer. Sometimes the simple things in life are really the best.
