This shawl started out as a very different design--its title comes from the "shift" in the design that happened by accident as I lined up the stitches. But, since I liked the way it was coming out better than the original sketch, I kept knitting--and this is the one of a kind result. GAUGE Gauge is not crucial and depends on needle/yarn size.

I knit, crochet, sew, quilt, take photos, draw, and do other crafts as well. I adore alpaca wool and other natural materials (cotton, feathers, gourds, wood, and even coconut shells!) and try to do some crafting every day. A couple of years ago, I began designing knit and crochet items (I confess that I am somewhat addicted to, love, love hats and have made many for gifts, to donate, and once in while for myself). Small items that work up quickly and travel easily, like hats, wrist warmers, and scarves, seem to be on many people's lists, although I also love making shawls and larger fashion items, as well as toys and dolls. Really, I suppose I haven't come across anything I won't at least try, and I hope you are adventurous in your work, too!
