As a person who suffers from social anxiety, I spend quite a bit of my time contemplating. Contemplating my designs, contemplating life, past failures, and future endeavors. As a new transplant to Washington, I contemplate my lovely new home, how the weather is different from California, and whether or not I’m going to need a shawl when I leave the house (usually, yes). The inspiration for this piece was curling up on my favorite chair with a mug of kombucha and contemplating the changing of the weather and what my home is going to look like for each season.

Contemplation is a garter tab, top-down, 3/4 shawl featuring welted garter stitch for the outside wedges and alternating diamond and braid cables in the center wedge reminiscent of falling leaves. The bot- tom border framing the shawl is worked in a 1x1 ribbing and finishes with a bind-off in pattern.
