A Second Twist

Hopefully you are reading this (a) snuggled up in the coziest of throws on the sofa, (b) from the white sand beach of a remote tropical island, (c) holding a sparkling bubbly cocktail, ideally one containing fresh fruit and lime, or (d) something else Super Fabulous (possibly involving chocolate?)

Question: what should be my policy on eating chocolate pudding for breakfast. Do or Don’t?

I say Do, right?

Of all the patterns I have designed so far, the Twist Shawl has been the most successful in so many ways. The original Twist was knit in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light (which I love!), but I had two skeins of the heavier Tosh Merino DK  in the  William Morns colorway in my stash for a couple of years now. I decided to use them up for a second Twist.

[Side note: Isn’t William Morns kind of a dark name for a colorway? I wonder…]

DSC_0048 Twist #2 came out lovely, if do say so myself. The yarn is a bit heavier (obviously) and not quite as soft as the Tosh Merino Light, but definitely feels good to drape over my shoulders on a crisp evening.

DSC_0049 If you are looking for a simple but not boring crescent shawl pattern to knit, I do hope you will give the Twist Shawl pattern a try.
