Last week, after much dithering and a long time of wanting to make a shawl, I finally decided upon a new pattern called Fledge, by Megan Goodacre using some Malabrigo sock I got from a friend's destash. Fledge is a very beautiful pattern, well written and clearly laid out and the Malabrigo sock seems to compliment it well, even now, before blocking, the lace is distinct and clear. I have been taking a photo after each completed section and am now on the fourth section.
While the pattern requires some degree of concentration it is not so tricky that it is exhausting or that it feels like hard work. The colour, called Solis, is very me, as a number of friends have commented. I'm looking forward to wearing it as I think it will compliment my wardrobe nicely. I'm glad I've had this to occupy me this week as I've been very tired from overdoing things earlier in June; though it does seem almost incredible that it is already July and the weather isn't helping the illusion!
