I just knit two shawls, and they are large ones. This winter I have found myself most often wearing shawls with two and a half skeins of yarn in them, like my Colour Affection 1 and 2, and Dreambird. I've found myself wearing them all the time, instead of cardigans, and I just want more large shawls. Luckily Kate Davies just released a book of shawls, designed by her and others. Most of the designers are people I have knit from before. While I wouldn't say I love every single shawl, there are at least four I consider must knits ( Montebreta. Theme and Variation, Shore Hap and Unicia in case you were wondering.) The best part is, each of these shawls are large. No more one skein necklaces, but giant wraps to keep me warm. I picked up the book from the post office earlier this week, and I have the perfect colours for Montbreata, which I cast on immediately. Haps are happening and its already so much fun.
