Day 1 – Brough Shawl

Each day in December I aim to share a quote about darkness, create a mandala in a natural setting with found items, and feature one knit in progress. Pattern will be linked in video description.

For this Brough Shawl, I am using a Polwarth wool/silk blend yarn from Sincere Sheep company, donated to me to make for mothers of critically ill children. The nonprofit I worked with all last year folded, but I and two other women in my community successfully completed and donated 15 shawls to the Seattle Ronald McDonald House, and intend to continue our shawl donations in 2019.

Donna Smith is a designer living and shepherding in the Shetlands, a place I would very much like to visit someday. You can find her patterns HERE.
