Liz brought in her Highway 61 Pullover, pattern designed by Jennifer Owens. She knit hers in Berroco Blackstone Tweed, and shared with us that the cables were a bit of slog, but she was happy with the finished item.

Liz also shared her finished Building Blocks Shawl, a mystery knit-along by Stephen West. She knit hers in Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles. Liz didn't love this project, but we all agreed it was a beautiful finished piece!

Remember back in October when Mindy from Raven Knit Designs came to talk to us about shawls? I LOVED this talk, and I immediately went home to search for a "house shawl" pattern that I could wrap around me as an extra layer when I'm bumming around the house. The shawl I chose is Daybreak, by Stephen West, and I just finished it in March. The yarns I used are Georgian Bay Fibres Bayfield Fingering for the main colour and a gradient mini skein pack from Frabjous Fibres for the shades of green. I wear this shawl almost every day.

I also shared the details about a neat little shawl pin I bought specifically for wearing with this shawl. Mindy spoke about penannular shawl pins during her talk, and the idea haunted me for months. As soon as my shawl was off the needles, I scoured Etsy for the perfect handmade shawl pin. The pin I bought is from QuirkySue's on Etsy.
