Spindrift Shawl


I finished this shawl over the weekend and this completes another holiday gift.  I am on schedule for all the knits I want to knit this year, this feels so good.  Every time I sit and knit, I'm filled with gratitude that I can sit and knit.  This past summer saw a long span of time with my back spasming and me not knitting and pouting a little bit.  I've been going to the gym religiously now, even on non personal trainer days all to support good health and the ability to sit.

Anyways, back to the shawl. 

The wool is steam valley fiber hand dyed fingering sock yarn that has been in my stash for a few years.  Miss Holly the cat found the hand and threw it all about so as I wound the wool back into a ball, I decided the universe (or Holly) wanted me to knit it up.



This pattern is one of Helen Stewart's designs, spindrift shawl.  This is a free pattern if you sign up for her newsletter which I recommend.  Her designs are wonderful and clearly written, line by line.

  4. That is so very pretty - Holly has good taste! I can't wait until I can knit again, but I am glad I didn't have my heart set on knitting gifts this year.

  10. Hi, the shawl is beautiful, I don't blame you for pouting a little, knitting is so good for the soul and its tough when your physical health makes you take a break. Well done for carrying on with the your exercise routine, it makes such a difference, I am loving getting outside and walking everyday.

  11. Fun shawl in that colorway. And I love reading about Frodo and Holly; I swear you could write picture books on their antics and play.
