So about that Broadband shawl by JumperCableKnitting Designs. I saw the pattern on Ravelry and instantly sent a note telling the designer she has done it again. I absolutely adore her designs..she gets me. My very first shawl was her design, the Groovy. She was the first “I can’t do that, but I want to try it” pattern. LOL! You can see her work here and don’t blame me when you want to purchase ALL the patterns. Well imagine my surprise when she “GAVE” me the pattern. Woot Woot!! Get it!! I couldn’t wait to cast on. I checked my stash and I had some Biography from Fable Fibers that was waiting to dazzle me and oh by did I pick the right yarn.
I truly enjoyed watching this baby come to life….I love the clever construction of the wedges, the subtle hint of texture and the eyelets, I absolutely adore this pattern. You all know I am a chunky monkey when it comes to yarn size, but I could do this, I actually enjoyed this gauge. Wet blocking truly set this piece free…it’s so light and has a beautiful drape…I just had to sit on the porch and let the nice spring breeze flow over it!
