A few months ago I knit myself an Age of Brass and Steam shawl for myself… only to finish it and realize that 1) it was smaller than I had wanted it to be and 2) it was also a lot stiffer than I had hoped. Since I loved the design, I knew that I would be knitting it up again… so I unravelled it all and prepped the yarn for reknitting.
Around the same time that post published, my mom hinted at wanting a shawl for either Mother’s Day or her birthday. She needed something that would keep her shoulders warm while sitting at her desk at work. I knew that she would be leaving for her annual trip back home to Germany at the beginning of May and wouldn’t be home for Mother’s Day, so I pulled out my needles and got to work!
