This shawl is absolutely beautiful. I have not complaints what so ever when it comes to the pattern. The designer was very clear in her instructions. It was so very simple to follow and I just love everything about it. I cannot wait to make this pattern again.
My beef with this project was the yarn. It was so horrible working with this yarn that it took me over a month to finish this project. I just did not want to work with it. The yarn kept on splitting so now I have little fuzzy sections all over the place where the yarn lost it's ply, spin, etc. not sure what it is called. It is such a shame because the yarn is a very pretty silver color.
I have now purchased some Verdant Gryphon yarn in the color "Nicias". It is this amazing green color that reminds me of the leaves changing color in Autumn. Like this:
I will post photos of the yarn when I start on the Shawl, for right now I want to keep it just for my viewing pleasure.
Do I recommend this pattern? Yes, Yes and Yes. What are you still going here? Go cast on this project now!
Until next time, Happy Knitting~
