Westerly Shawl by September Knits.
I was lucky to meet Lynne of West Coast Colour in person and fell in love with her yarn, especially Homegrown. It has an incredible softness and strength to it. It is so bouncy and feels great against the skin. I was so excited to cast on. The funny thing is, when I casted on, I had a complete other plan for it; I was seeing cables and fringe. Very quickly, my hands and this yarn had a different plan, and Westerly was born. This shawl is such a fun experience, first with the sensory feel of the yarn and then with a play on textures. I hope you enjoy knitting and wearing this shawl as much as I do.
