Every so often I read a book that is so good that I’m sad when I reach the end. I miss the characters and watching their story unfold. This shawl was just like that. Each and every stitch was a pleasure to knit. As the shawl got larger and the rows longer it was just more to love. As I reached the last few rows, before the panic of the unplanned 12 rows, I could feel my mood change. I went from complete enjoyment to feeling wistful knowing that the end was near.
The pattern is Grateful Moments by Sylvia McFadden. It’s a fabulous pattern, everything I like in a shawl. It’s well written and simple to follow. The yarn is Malabrigo sock in Persia. I have grown to love this yarn. It’s perfect for shawls and holds it shape nicely when blocked. Also it’s available now so many colors.
This photo shows the color of the yarn best. It isn’t right but it is closer than the other photos.
This is my final Camp Loopy project for 2019. I had so much fun with Camp this year. I plan on attending next year.
