Juneberry Shawl in April


For my dear Mum's birthday in March, I knit her a shawl from her own alpaca yarn, and I so fell in love with the pattern I right away cast on for another shawl (this one is a gift for someone else and she knows who she is.)  I finished this one in April.

This almost never happens with me.  I like the new, the next, the onward.

Somehow, though, this pattern keeps me knitting.  Just when I get bored of one section, it's time to switch to another.
I have discovered that this pattern works best with solid or lightly heathered yarns.  Anything too "busy" hides all the detailed stitches -
- and who would want to hide this?!
(Pattern specifications and yarn information can be found on my Ravelry page.)
