When I took on the challenge of knitting a sweater in 17 days (during the Olympics) I really thought I had nailed the spirit of the games: Take on a project that will be a challenge to complete in the time frame. And then I finished the sweater in a mere 11 days and didn’t know what else to do for the other six. Well cast on again of course!
The Pattern: Akimbo by Stephen West
The Needles: US 4’s
The Yarn: Bugga! in Faithful Beauty and Walnut Huskfly
The Verdict: This is my new favorite shawl! The yarn was amazing to work with – it is oh so soft and so rich in color and the cashmere content makes it feel like a million bucks when I wear it. The pattern was simple, but the edging really takes it from ho-hum to WOW! I’ll definitely be trying this pattern again.
