Pattern: Green the Whole Year 'Round by Ana Yamamoto.
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Whiskers colorway
I started this shawl the first of the year... and then was immediately side-tracked by the Bohemian Rhapsody. I really cannot recall when I finished it with all the craziness we have been
Anna Yamamoto offers this pattern for free. It is a bit of a challenge though. I always take on a "harder" project after the Little Men & Co. head home from their December stay. FORCES me to put my attention on something other than a quiet house.
Part of the reason I chose Green the Whole Year 'Round is that I loved the scriptures throughout the pattern:
"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And, he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in this season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. " ~ Psalm 1: 1-3
"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." ~ 3 John 1:2
Amen and amen.
I confess to finishing the last part of this shawl by doing plain garter short rows because I just didn't have it in me at the time to pay enough attention to stay in pattern. I loved the way it came out though.
Thank you, Anna Yamamoto, for a beautiful design. I think I may need to do it again in a fingering weight... Not now, though.
