Ironically, summer is one of my favorite knitting times in the year! It’s true that I can get pretty warm with big projects on my lap, but at last with school over I have unlimited knitting time! It’s also when me and my friend @mocaw continue our annual exchange of comics for knitted gifts. Last year she asked for a red hat, but this year she had a request for a black and white version of the Daybreak shawl I made last year. Lots of drape was requested, so I decided to test out Knit Picks’ Galileo, knowing the bamboo viscose content would give it a great fabric quality. Luckily I was right, and SUPER impressed with the yarn–I definitely plan on buying more for future projects! The recipient was also very pleased with the finished project, which is why I love trading gifts with her in the first place <3
