It's been a cold, rainy Wednesday here and not much to tell so I thought I'd post about a favorite hand knit of mine. Design is Doncaster by Holli Dapp, also the host of The Swift Knits Podcast on youtube. This pattern introduced me to the art of cables as they trickle up the edge of this asymmetrical shawl. The yarn and design married perfectly; it was truly a delight to make. The yarn is Monte Donegal Tweed in color way Aqua which I had purchased at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival in 2014. This yarn sadly isn't available anymore which is nuts because it is so wonderful!! 

Time to fix dinner and cozy up for an evening of knitting whilst the rain continues. Happy knitting!
