I'm trying to pick up knitting again after a long break (we watch TV in the evenings and I'd like something to do ......).
Does anyone have any suggestions for a pattern which doesn't need a lot of attention?  Such as a shawl ?
(I think I remember Fran was knitting on her work commute but I can't find the post.)
Thanks for any suggestions.

I've moved this to the knitting subforum for you.

I'm currently working on an Icelandic jumper Afmæli, and after that I'll be working on a wrap from Jared Flood which looks like this:



I made a lovely shawl a few years ago which was very simple as it was just stocking stitch with some holey decreases every now and again, called Jet Stream. This was mine in a forest green yarn:

I'm knitting a Celtic Myths shawl. 

I love the Icelandic jumper, @Francesca .  I haven't done any colourwork for years but fancy doing some this winter.
