Short Row Love
Another shawl has been completed and yet again, I'm thrilled with the results and can't wait to wear it. There's something to be said about pairing garter stitch with short row shaping-the perfect combination like peas and carrots, or bread and butter. In my imagination I have another shawl planned in gray and purple. Soon.
The pattern is pendulum shawl and it's well written and fun to knit up. It's an easy pattern for your very first time of dipping your toes in the water of short row shaping. I did not block the shawl because I enjoyed the results once it was off the needles. I'm sure it would be much bigger when blocked.
Malabrigo sock yarn is a fantastic yarn for making a shawl, so very soft around your neck and I enjoy the colors! Just for a bit of reality I've photoed the shawl with my jacket and the pile of papers, notebooks, and books that are continually on my kitchen table.
