Off the Needles a Lonnnng Time Ago: Shawl of Squares

I was digging through unfinished projects with the plan to either finish them or wind the unfinished pieces back into balls of yarn for future projects or for donating to other knitters. A lot of what I found fell into the "what was I thinking" category of projects...projects so old that fashions or my tastes or my body had changed enough to make me wonder why I even started them. Out came my ball winder and back went the yarn into my stash.

While all this digging was going on, I came across this shawl which was completely finished but never worn. I think the yarn is Lion Brand's Jiffy in cerise. (I also found an afghan in the same yarn that was not quite finished. I'll post a photo of that later) I can't remember where I got the pattern, but I'm sure it's from some book in my library.

Apparently, at one time I was quite taken with this yarn and color. Not sure I'll keep the shawl, but it might come in handy for snuggling in during the winter months since it is so long.
