Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. I'm having a bit of celebration going on here; I finally finished my Age of Brass Shawl! After about four months of hauling around my knitting bag everywhere I went (I rarely knit at home, I do most of my knitting in the car when my husband drives), it is finally finished. Yay!
The pattern is very easy to follow and such a fun project. It is available for free on Raverly. The instructions on the pattern are for a small shawl or kerchief but I added a few more sections to make it into a shawl to cover my back. It gets chilly at the office so I thought it would be nice to wear a shawl once in a while instead of my usual cardigan. I absolutely love the way it turned out. The yarn is Galileo from Knit Picks; a blend of Merino wool and Bamboo. It has a beautiful drape and it feels so soft and luxurious. The color is so yummy it reminds me of raspberry jam.
I'm slowly growing my collection of handmade knit wears and it makes so happy. Plus with each project and learning new techniques to improve my knitting skills.
Now I'm off to browse Raverly in search of my next knitting project.
Have a wonderful week!
