Eurybia Shawl

After getting this shawl kit as a gift (full post details here) I was almost too touched to start it. I just kept looking at it and admiring it for all its beauty. I just wanted to do it justice. But somehow the urge to finish it made me start (does that even make sense?), also it really helped that I loved the color of the yarn. Since October it has been patiently waiting for me to begin. So one day this January I stepped into my closet got it out and was off!

I feel so proud not only of finishing it so quickly but also by how much more I learned!
Knitting it made me learn how to add beads with a crochet hook, which was easy, this was the first shawl project I had worked from tip to tip, and also I learned several new stitches.

It makes me feel so happy.

My very talented mom took the photographs for me.

The beads add such a nice little touch, and a subtle heaviness to the shawl. I really love the drape of this yarn. It hangs so beautifully.

The pattern is supposed to mimic waves, and since I have always loved going to the ocean it just makes it that much more special.

Perfect pattern. Perfect yarn. Perfect gift of kindness from Wendy.

Thank you so much Wendy again!
