Antique Shawl



I finished this shawl over a week ago and it's officially the first holiday gift of 2020.  I love how this turned out!  I've knit many Helen Stewart patterns and enjoy how the directions are easy to follow.  There is nothing like steadily increasing stitches on every row watching the shawl take form.



The yarn is from Apple Tree Knits which I highly recommend.  The gradient color themes they create are fabulous and the wool blends are beautiful.


I am officially done with my 'pink' phase of knitting (maybe!).

  6. The gradient in that pink is subtle and perfect. And it lends itself really well to the pattern. Great job!

  10. Your shawl is beautiful - so soft and feminine. It will make a wonderful gift. My current pair of socks is a holiday knit. It's nice to get even one in the big gift tote in the closet.

  11. I've never knit one of Helen's patterns, but I need to! (and it would for sure be a sucker bet to think you're done with pink ;-)
