This is actually the second Mara Shawl that I started - the first has been waiting patiently in the knitting basket while I finished off this one.
Pattern:: Mara Shawl
Yarn:: Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed
Colour:: Posie (It's been sitting in my cupboard for 10 years, waiting...waiting...)
Yardage:: approximately 900m
I love love love knitting this pattern!
I did make two changes to the original pattern, though. First, I knitted it in stocking stitch as I am not a garter stitch lover. Second, for the increases at the centre spine, I chose not to YO but instead used M1R and M1L as suggested in knitloon's project notes.
Now I love love love this shawl!!
The only problem is, it is going to a new home tomorrow. As a gift. To a beautiful buddie who certainly deserves it.
And that is why I have already ordered some more wool so I can make one for myself. Yay!! A new project!!!
What are your working on today?
