I have a blankie – I love to finish

Shawl Complete 1

Back in February I thought it would be a good idea to try and start my PhD. Well that didn’t happen until August, but back at the beginning of the year I started to go to a couple of lectures and start to get my head in the game. But it was cold.

Anyone who has ever been to Australia in February knows that it isn’t cold outside – it is hot and everything is brown from the lack of water and the months of heat (in the part of the world I am in). So to be cold was something different, but that is what happens when the air-conditioning is set on arctic. So I needed a blanket.

At about the same time I had been lusting after a Yoga Shawl from Andrea Mowry. It seemed to me to be the perfect thing for the winter or the in-between times or the middle of summer with the A/C stuck on freezing. So off to the Bendigo Woolen Mills website I went and I started it.

It took months to make.

Not because it was hard, but because I was a bit slow with it.

But done it is.

And I love it.

  1. I love it too đź’•. Would like to make one myself but the recommended yarn is wool…I wonder if the same pattern would word with a soft natural yarn … hemp, cotton, linen mix ?

    1. Perhaps if you swatch it and see how it goes? I needed the snuggly quality of the wool, which worked well for this.
