Paris and Violets

My mother's birthday was last month, so of course, I knitted her a shawl. Because I'm a good daughter like that.

She's had a two month migraine at this point, so it's lovely that the shawl can give her comfort and warmth when she feels dreadful.

The pattern was really great, and the lace was easy (so of course, I messed up on it several times!). I did a cable cast on, knit the large, and then did a k2tob tbl, put stitch back on left needle etc bind off.

I don't think I can say enough about how amazing this yarn is, I want to marry it. It's luscious, amazing drape, such great colour, and it was a pure joy to knit.

On rav here.

Mom loves it so much, and hasn't taken it off since yesterday!
