A power shawl

I think this might be my favorite shawl ever. Ever. It was a relaxing knit, but the best part is the perfection in its drape. Say hello to Ashburnashburn-9
Many Ravelers have cut out some of the repeats, citing how large the shawl is. It is very long from end to end, but I think it works out tremendously well that way. If you want a nice collar of a shawl, you can have it. If you want it wrapped about the shoulders, it’s long enough to stay without slipping. I was a bit of a bad girl and didn’t block this, but it’s nearly all garter stitch and looks pretty neat. If it was lace I’d make myself do it. It came off of the needles last night and I paraded around in it until I finally had to go to bed. I strongly considered cuddling with it.ashburn-7I considered dropping a few of the end repeats just because I wanted it on my person that very minute, but I held out and made it as the pattern specified. And I couldn’t be happier. ashburn-6The yarns are Malabrigo Sock in Terracotta (the orange), The Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze Peppino in Lake of Bays (the speckled one), and Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in Aventurine (the turquoise). I think the Hazel Knits was the most captivating to me and I want a million more things made out of that exact color. ashburn-8This is definitely a power shawl. Is there such a thing?! I feel bold and amazing with this on. My heart is nearly broken that it’s far too hot today to wear it, but I’m hopeful that cooler mornings might let me wear it for a bit in the coming week.

Now I should return to my Featherweight cardigan with full force, since it has a chance to be worn this season.

    • My daughter insisted on cuddling with a Citron shawl I made out of a mink blend yarn by Lotus Yarns one night for bed. Ever since, that’s been on my mind.
