Today I’m going to show you a shawl I made for my mother. This was one of the most relaxing knits I have done in a long while.
This pattern is Wingspan by maylin Tri’Coterie Design (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/wingspan-2)
It was made with Lion Brand Amazing yarn (http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/amazing.html) which I just love! You get amazing (really!) color changes with no effort at all and it is so lovely against your skin.
I can’t tell you how much I truly enjoyed making this shawl and once I sat down and actually worked on it for a lenghth of time it went very quickly. My Ravelry page says I started in October and finished in January but in reality I only worked on this for a couple of weeks. That may not sound like a quick knit to you but for me it is very fast! I knit to relax and only have sporadic moments where my stitches are quick. I prefer to rhythmic tune of the needles and the feel of the yarn sliding through my fingers. I tend to savor every moment when I am stitching just to relax!
I curious to know what type of stitcher are you? Do you knit to get it done or do you just enjoy the process?
Have a blessed day!
