Every knitter has a favourite medium. Mine I believe, is cables.
I am so very, very, happy with the progress of my shawl design. It’s the perfect marriage of fibre and design elements, even if I did design it myself. I’m taking my time with this one because I’m enjoying it so much I don’t want the journey to end!
The light dances on the Mythral, the drape and loft of the yarn carry off the cables beautifully, without making the fabric stiff. The overall feel is ‘just right’. When I look at this shawl, it reminds me of the forest. Of the texture of tree bark, the dappled light on the leaves on the ground and the winding rivers and streams of the land that I love so much.
I haven’t got a name for it yet, but it will be a forest name, I’m sure of it.
