Winter's Blue

I know I'm a little bit late on this design - thank you all for your patience. It was due to be published on the first day of winter, December 21, 2018. Unfortunately - or maybe fortunately, depends on how you look at it - I moved over the holidays and just couldn't publish on schedule. I was without internet for a couple of weeks before everything got settled in my new place. And BTW - I looooove my new place. I'm much closer to my 82 yr. old mom and my kids and grands. It's such a cozy place, and I'm still working on getting things organized and set up the way I want.

So let's get to my final shawl design for the Poetic Shawls Collection. This is a unique shape - I think a half hexagon. Love the way the stitches reflect snowflakes or frosted windows. I chose a yarn color that really represents the winter theme, and of course, I used Cascade Yarns as with all the four shawls.

Size after blocking: 
Wingspan - 48"
Depth - 28"

Cascade Sarasota
Color 15 - Ultramarine
Need 2 hanks
Per hank: 314 yds.

Hook size: H/5.0mm
Tapestry Needle

As with the previous 3 shawls, this design is inspired by a poem. Here's one of my favorite poets, Sara Teasdale. I really love her writing. I hope you get inspired by it also.

This poem is in the public domain.
