Michelle’s Sea Silk shawl

Having a project I’ve been putting heart and soul into but I can’t quite blog yet, and feeling a bit antsy for a little more knitting around here, I thought I’d show off my daughter Michelle’s shawl.  I have most of the fullness arranged across the back in this picture, trying to show the pattern a bit better; it is wide and sweeping and drapey and gloriously shiny and soft.  It’s a simple pattern to work and took two skeins of Sea Silk.

When my tech editor for “Wrapped in Comfort” pulled this shawl out of its bag, she immediately emailed to ask if I’d be interested in selling it to her.  Given that she could certainly knit one, too, that was a huge compliment!  And one I’ve been grateful for ever since (not to mention, I’m claiming bragging rights on it for life. Thank you, Donna!)

Is that the one Michelle gifted you the yarn with, then said something like she wouldn’t mind a shawl from it?
I think knitter/weaver/crocheter/tatter-er etc or ‘knot’ many people appreciate the FIBERNESS of it all.
I am glad to see a different photo of it, I love that design, and intend to knit it myself :-}

It’s beautiful and wouldn’t it be wonderful if I ran into her here at work or in town and she were wearing it.

The pattern and the yarn are just exquisite!
Oh, yes it’s good to having a little knitting on here now and then. 😉

It’s gorgeous! I love the way the yarn and the pattern work together 🙂

That color makes me think of baked apples. Oh drat! Now I’m hungry again!

I have Sea Silk, but only one skein (from a sock club, and not in shawl-worthy hues). Hmmm… Time to shop!
