Every Girl Needs a Little Glitz

We all know by now I am not a girly-girl. I'm happiest in shorts and a T-shirt, mucking in the garden or looking at bugs. But, even I feel the pull of the girly things now and then.

About a year ago, Z*llers was clearing out some of Bernat's ladder Matrix yarn. I think it was about $1 a ball, and in a fit of girly longing I picked up three balls.

Finally found a good project for some of it (still have over a ball left). A basic, garter-stitch triangle shawl, with fringe for good measure. I knit it with Cool Linen, a cotton/linen blend. A fun, sparkly wrap for those days I just need a little glitz.
