I have a very long list of things I want to make and on that list is this beautiful thing The Whippoorwill Shawl.
I saw this Whippoorwill Shawl on Crafts from the Cwtch blog last year and when I saw the lovely Lynda (Lynda is the Mum of Sarah of Crafts from the Cwtch) wearing it on Great British Sewing Bee last month it brought it back to mind. This year I promised myself I would buy no more wool or fabric until I had worked my way through my little stash mountain, but look, isn’t it divine, all swishy and bright?
I had to have it so I bought the pattern and the wool there and then before I put it to the back of my mind.
The pattern is available to buy on Ravelry here and the wool is Kauni Effect Yarn.
I bought my wool from here it came all the way from Estonia in a couple of days! It’s quite a scratchy wool but I was itching to get knitting with it (see what I did there?).
I love the way the colours are showing themselves, this looks like a sunset to me.
I will be posting updates on its bright and breezy (albeit slow) progress.
