While watching the Great British Sewing Bee 2016, I spotted contestant, Charlotte Newlands wearing a blue and green handknit shawl in the first episode.
After my online sleuthing, I discovered the pattern was Avant L’orage and decided to knit my own version of the garter / slip stitch shawl.
Using a skein of Blue Moon Fiber Art Socks that Rock that I acquired 10 years ago in Toronto from my LYS, Lettuce Knit and pairing it with a skein of Schoppel-Wolle Admiral Stärke 6 which is from my current LYS, The Constant Knitter
I started this perfect Stitch n Bitch project back in August.
After a few months of knit…knit….knit.. and well placed slip stitches my Across the Pond Shawl was completed on the 10th Anniversary of my journey across the Atlantic.
