I just couldn't wait


The Alka shawl is blocking, but I had to share. This pattern is from Myrna Stahman's book.


Confession, the book was daunting at first. It became less intimidating once it was quiet around the house and I could actually make notes. There are suggestions in the book about this particular shawl design and changes to be made allowing for bulkier yarn.
The yarn is one of the Sonoma colorways from the Hope Blanket.
This shawl is a sample for Briar Rose. If you catch them at a show this season, check it out. The colors are always so much more beautiful in person. I will put up more photos after it dries.
