I am a very lucky lady. In addition to the issue of Pom Pom magazine I was craving, I was also lovingly gifted the new Anthology 1 collection from Madder. The Sibella Cardigan is high up on my knitting wishlist, but I wanted a more immediate taste of these incredible patterns; so when my mother-in-law offered me some yarn from her stash, I cast on for the Camilla Shawl right away. The very next day my dear friend posted a picture of her absolutely stunning version, and I was even more inspired. How incredibly beautiful is that shawl?
So despite the fact that it has been over 90 degrees here for the last three days, I've been making rapid progress. I'm using a DK weight yarn (Silky Merino by Malabrigo in Cape Cod Grey) so I did an additional repeat of the fan pattern to help keep the length. Now that I'm into the garter stitch the rows are flying by, and I hope to have it off the needles this weekend!
