Some of you may remember me blogging about this work-in-progress back in December.  After many distractions along the way, I finally finished this exquisite version of the Groovy – a design by JumperCablesKnitting – last week and, for the life of me, I can’t figure out why it took so long. It was a thoroughly enjoyable knit and was actually fairly quick in the end.  As expected, the Shibui Silk Cloud and Shibui Pebble were a dream pairing and the finished texture is light, warm, and soft with a delicate halo.  The addition of the contrast stripe at the end adds a modern edge to an otherwise “quiet” shawl and the shape of the piece allows it to work as a wrap or scarf. A great transition piece for spring!
