I am in MAD LOVE with this one, y’all.
Oh, I LOVE spinning Romney as singles.
Anyway, I knew I wanted this to be a shawl, specifically I wanted it to become Cladonia , another gorgeous Through the Loops pattern from Kirsten Kapur.
I cast on at the end of July, and knit the striped section (striping it with itself) during August, but then set it aside for other pursuits (namely another Through the Loops pattern – the Perry Street Rugby , which I ADORE and get compliments on everytime I wear it). Anyway, I didn’t get back to the shawl until sometime in October, and it was such a delight to knit that beautiful lace border in that autumn gold.
Basically, I could not be more happy with this shawl. I LOVE it.
I do sometimes wonder what the neighbors think of my backyard shenanigans (on our corner lot, our backyard is visible to all). But I don’t care – it’s a handspun shawl, y’all, I’m willing to go to ridiculous lengths to celebrate my love of it.
