There is a silver lining to all life’s problems, you just have to see it. Like this shawl; the body is like a big heavy cloud that covers you in it’s grip, and then there’s the silver lining that is the cable brim and you realize that the hug is really a good warming and loving hug that shields you from the cold and whistling wind.
The shawl is knitted from edge to edge, starting from the straight edge, progressing through the body and ending with the cable panel on the outer rim.
