#40 of 365 - Big Purple or Otherwise Known as the Moonlit Birch


It's done and it's big. It's light-weight, warm and fuzzy and I love it a lot. I like the Birch pattern from Rowan well enough that I think I will do it to gauge in another yarn as a Super Secret Surprise for Someone... The pattern is available for free over on Ravelry, just search for Birch by Sharon Miller. This one was knit from the top down which I hadn't done on a BIG shawl before, so it was about the process more than anything. When I have someone to take a proper picture, I will show you just how big it really is...

I swear I kept reading the title as "Moonlit Bitch"

Which considering all you had to go through to get the yarn I guess it would be appropriate.

Hey, there - thanks for stopping by!

This throw is fab - the color is luscious. It looks so soft and comfy. I want to wrap it around me and watch a Criminal Minds marathon!
