I saw this shawl in the Spring 2009 Issue of Interweave Knits, right when I was starting to develop some momentum with my knitting. I remember the excitement of thinking, "someday, I will be able to knit that!" I actually forgot about it until recently, when I was perusing the Ravelry pattern database to find a shawl pattern for a retirement gift.
I love knitting shawls, and I think I will enjoy this one even more since it's a blast from the past! I'm knitting it in Juniper Moon Farm Findley, which is a yarn I just love, so it's a trifecta of a project!
