Waiting for Rain

I started my Waiting for Rain shawl on November 30th and finished March 16th, a typical turnaround for a shawl of this size for me when I am not working on it constantly. While I feel like I have "enough" shawls... at the same time "special" yarn sometimes needs to go into something that can be worn not just seasonally. And even on the hottest day out here in Ohio, my office is a typical Library office. COLD.

Working this up was easy once I realized stitch markers showing me the start and finish of the lace short rows would give me SANITY. Only ripped out the first one 2-3 times, once I started the stitch markers it was smooth sailing. Overall pleased with the outcome, and happy I chose a picot edge to use more of the pretty blue that this skein from Twisted Fiber Arts turned into.

The best part of this shawl is the versatility of it. It goes with every single item of clothing I own depending on how I drape it, and the lush softness, it can't be beat!
