I’m going to lovingly title these knitting posts (for now, at least!) as Knitting While Pregnant. A good friend of mine, Karen, was tasked with trying to talk me back into my senses when I asked for her advice on a good shawl pattern to knit for my nearly-grandmother-in-law’s 90th birthday.
While I have declined the challenge to NOT knit while pregnant, I did take her advice on a good knitting pattern – the Multnomah shawl. It’s a simple shawl pattern – lots of endless garter stitches with a comfortable feather-and-fan pattern at the end to keep things interesting.
It’s knit with MadelineTosh’s Merino Light, one of my favorite yarns for its subtle color variations and absolute delicious softness. I have about a month before it needs to be finished – let’s hope this very-pregnant-with-twins-mama follows through!
Feel free to join Nicole over at FrontierDreams for her weekly knit along. In the meantime, what are you working on creating this week?
