Watermelon Delights Shawl
"Hello knitters! As the last days of spring are soon to pass and summer is fast approaching, it is high time for me to switch to some cotton and light yarn projects, and what’s better than a lacy and light shawl to wear over your tank top or swimsuit, or when it gets chilly at night. I will be the first to admit that knitting with fine yarn might be irking sometimes; you might get frustrated as the progress in knitting is slow, and you don’t get the same rapid sense of achievement and rejoice as when you work with bulkier yarn. However, the reward of holding the finished piece afterwards is so worth it. Even after many years of knitting, I always feel so proud and accomplished once I see my finished work worn and appreciated. I had previously worked with Scheepjes yarn more than two years ago, when I made Wrap Me in Sunshine Shawl. Many of you have shown love for that project, to which I am eternally humbled and grateful, however I didn't have plans to buy more (see rant about fine yarn above). But since I received it as a gift (again!), I decided to use it, making a simpler design this time. It is an asymmetrical shawl that starts with flowing lines, appearing once you’ve repeated the general pattern several times, followed by a stripe of eyelets along the wider side, and that is it. It's a beautiful and elegant one-cake shawl, and I hope you find it interesting and make one for yourselves this summer. "
