Shawl Progress

It’s not often that I simply follow someone else’s pattern, but I sure do enjoy being able to knit and knit without thinking.

I spent part of the Labor Day weekend working on Stephen West’s Daybreak shawl. Here it is, all ready for the final border, which will be all the dark purple color.

Ready for border

I hope to finish it on my flight to Atlanta today (on my way to teach at the Atlanta Knitting Guild this weekend). Although the temps cool off to the 60s in the evenings here in Colorado, I don’t expect I’ll need the shawl while I’m in Georgia. But I’ll have it just in case.
