First of all: a Happy Year to all of you! A happy and healthy year, full of nice knitting, fun projects, lots of creativity!
And I do hope that you have spent a good time around Christmas.
At Christmas Eve I got the inspiration to make a new shawl! It was very good in many ways; as I often dream about making a shawl to present. On the other hand it was not the best of days to get a new knitting-idea! I had to wait to get started until the next day; and I can tell you that the needles went at high speed:)
Some of the great advantages about this shawl:
- The border was worked first, then the pattern over the mid-stiches,
meaning NO picking up of stiches for the edge in the end!
- The shawl has all the advantages of a triangular shawl and is even easier to
wear due to the straight bottom. Not so much fabric to tuck away under coats!
- I was amazed to see how fast the work was growing! Think that it is probably due
to the fact that colors are changed; it makes you want to see more and more...
- The femininity! That's what I always look for in a pattern; a feminine touch!
