Look at the pretty

My mom’s birthday was last month. I decided to knit her a shawl.
 
 
The pattern is Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark. The yarn is Mirasol Yarn T’ika, a soft pima cotton yarn I found at Tuesday Morning. I also bought a shawl pin from Nicholas and Felice to go with it.
 
 
My mom’s not generally a shawl person, so who knows if she’ll wear it. Doesn’t matter, I enjoyed knitting it anyway, and could think of no one who deserved it better than her. Happy birthday., mom.
 
 

Fall Forest shawl

I’m down in California this weekend to visit family and go to a friend’s wedding. The wedding was yesterday, so I can post my bride gift:
 
 
The wedding was held deep in a forest at a retreat, so I wanted to make something that signified fall in the forest. The pattern is Luscious Forests Lace Shawl by Anna Dalvi, and the yarn is Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the Loro barranquero colorway.
 
The wedding was beautiful. Much love to the happy couple!
