Sock-Yarn Shawls II: Harvest

When my BFF Jenni was knitting the Harvest shawl sample for Sock-Yarn Shawls II, I couldn't decide what to name it. It contained all these lovely cables along with the lace and used my favorite colorway from Hazel Knits, Hoppy Blonde, but I was completely lost on a name. Fortunately, I surround myself with good, creative people, like Laura, who came up with the perfect name - Harvest.
Another one of the semi-circular shawls in the book, but with cables and a knitted-on cable and lace border. I'm really pleased with this shawl.
I've been wanting to add a cabled border to a shawl for sometime and this was the perfect shawl for that detail.
Jenni was so great and patient with me on this shawl. She worked that border more times that I care to admit. I did lots of tweaking and adjustments to the border pattern until I got it just right. You know you have a good friend when she's willing to rip out cable and lace multiple times for you!

Stay tuned for Thursday. I'll be talking about the final shawl of the book - Sunburst.
