Oh my goodness, I love this shawl. I loved every second of knitting it. Not only because I love this yarn (and am so glad I had my latest batch made into worsted weight!), but because of all that perfect garter stitch in the pattern. It is so welcome in the summer time when I'm carting my knitting here there and everywhere, and often in conversation or distracted otherwise. It's been especially good for calming my nerves while sitting in the passenger seat as Calvin gets his driving hours in. (Truth be told, I needn't be so nervous - he's an excellent and attentive driver.) This shawl has been around the bend this summer, indeed.
And now that it's done, the size is just right. It's cozy and warm and perfect for the cooler moments that the September days are bringing. The pattern is Leading Bird by Leah Thibault. And the yarn, well that's mine. I still have to pinch myself regularly that this is an actual thing I do - knitting wool that came from the sheep I share my backyard with. What a delight it is.
