I had an urgent desire to knit a shawl this week. I've been meaning to replace one I made a few years ago in the same colour as this in a single ply which had become sort of fuzzy and felted (no more single ply lacework for me). This is one of my favourite patterns of all time. I've made it once before and plan to do it many many more times. (I'm trying really hard not to cast on again today for one). It's easy to memorize and goes quickly and has plain purl wrong side rows. It's a good "comfort food" pattern for me. I know I'm going to enjoy making it and it will turn out fabulous.
And this yarn! I am always so happy to discover a great yarn, and this one is handdyed by Tanis in Montreal. (I may also have a soft spot for Montreal. I took my Fine Arts degree there). Her yarn is so nice to work with and her colour choices are causing me many wasted hours of indecision. She even sells roving!
Hope you have a great weekend, peeps. Happy fathers' day!
