Guild Member Show and Tell:
This was my first shawl, so it might have been a tad ambitious, but I am a process knitter and enjoy learning new things. The pattern is very well written and easy to follow. If you enjoy the shape but want to use one colour only, I suggest looking at the pattern Imagine When by the same designer, which looks very similar but with some points on the edge. The shawl is done entirely in garter stitch with some yarnover rows for interest. The short row sections made it interesting and I really enjoyed this knit.
I used Madelinetosh Twist Light in Espadrilles and Button Jar Blue. I was inspired by anneleterme’s Let’s Play version in bright summer colours and decided to go big or go home. Most of the beautiful projects are done with at least one neutral colour and these versions are gorgeous as well.
There were a LOT of ends to sew in and if you look closely enough in one of the photos from last meeting you can see where I did a poor job of that. I do get compliments on this whenever I wear it and highly recommend the pattern.
