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?!
