This year, the winter came on one Saturday. It surprised us a lot but there’s no other choice. It’s better to get used on it. Especially when I've been preparing for it for a long time. I already have a few pullovers and cardigans and, since the last week, there’s a new shawl too.
That’s how I spent the first day of snow here – the whole day on the sofa with a knitting project. It was a wonderful day! I felt it as a gift to us – we could not move out although we wanted to. In result, we rested, both mentally and physically, like never before. I hope it happens again soon.
And when was the last time when you felt like that?
The yarn used is a 50% wool and 50% acrylic mix, knitted with 6 mm needles (size 10 American).
Finally, I fixed (blocked) it with steam as usual. The size enlarged significantly so have this in mind if you make the shawl too.
