What was your inspiration?
When I designed this shawl pattern originally, I used the cabled lace edging to suggest the slightly oblong shape and seeds of the loganberry, which was also the color name of the original Mountain Colors sample model. Since Mountain Colors asked to borrow the loganberry for the TNNA show, I needed to quickly make another model or my own booth. I selected this handspun yarn from my stash because it reminded me of the colors of blackberries.
What are you most proud of?
I knit this shawl in 4 days because I was under a deadline!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This crescent-shaped shawl begins with a strip of lace edging worked on only 19 to 23 sts with an 8-row repeat. The short-rowed body of the shawl is an easy, very lacy one-row stitch pattern that works up in a jiffy.
