I knit up this shawl after watching the movie "Sweet November". Charlize Theron wore this shawl/scarf in various colors throughout the movie and while the movie was not really my cup of tea, I couldn't take my eyes off the scarf. As soon as the movie ended, I wanted to knit this scarf but considered that others had probably thought the same. I googled 'sweet november scarf' and found a number of crocheted versions of the shawl. While I can crochet, I thought it would be cool to work out how to knit it. Thus, the 'Sweet November Knit Shawl'.
I live in NYC and love all the crafterly adventures afforded in this great city. I have traveled the world and find knitting gets me through long transport waits. Knitting also makes a great conversation topic; people always feel they can start chatting with the person knitting.
