This shawl makes me happy because:
1) It was my first test knit.
2) The designer, Holly Priestley, is one talented (and very patient!) lady.
3) The pattern, Sunny Grey Skies, is a wonderfully wearable shawl design
4) that features two of my favorite knitterly things, stripes and lace.
5) The yarn, Quince & Co. Chickadee, was a joy to knit with and comes in beautiful colors
6) which happen to match my favorite knitting spot.
(go to FO Friday and join in the fun!)
