with this shawl.

And I’m not alone — several versions have already popped up on Ravelry.  (You can see them in my Ravelry favorites here.  In my opinion, the best pattern name is the “Milk Run Shawl.”  Are there any versions I’ve missed?  If so, let me know!  🙂  )  I’m reserving judgment on which one to make until I see more versions actually knit up by other Ravelers — and maybe by then my obsession will have actually passed.  After all, I’m not normally a shawl knitter or wearer.  But Kate makes this look extremely wearable and cute.  For the record, I’m also not normally a royal watcher but I confess to getting a bit caught up in this Duchess of Cambridge frenzy!
