Little Sophisticate

We’re still waiting for the little one (two weeks to my due date!), but I have another baby knit to show off.

I’m already excited about fall walks in the park with the little one!

Daybreak Shawl

The final shawl I have to show off is Stephen West’s Daybreak pattern. I saw this shawl going around Ravelry and loved it’s shape and style. I picked yarn that is outside the range of my normal color palette but I really like the results. This shawl is springy and energetic, and very easy to wear.

Tom bought me a beautiful wooden shawl pin for Christmas that is perfect for this shawl. I’m so pleased to finally have a shawl pin because I think it makes my lace items a lot more wearable – I can just anchor a shawl once and go, rather than constantly adjusting my shawls as they slide off my shoulders.  As a result, I wore my lacework a lot more often this winter than I have in the past.
