Oh Maia!

Episodes 8 and 9 are up on the podcast, Knitting Pipeline.  Find it on iTunes or on the show on the episode title.  The feed is
In both of these episodes I read letters that were written to me by Elizabeth Zimmermann, my knitting hero.

I just finished my first project with beads. I only knitted in the beads at the bottom of the shawl, which is good because the top part (where the shawl started) was a little too intense for me to manage along with beads.  I am being so selfish lately.  I want to keep all the shawls I am making.  Sigh.

Maia is the second shawl in Rosemary Hill's book, Seven Small Shawls to Knit.
The heart motif is also carried across the top edge of the shawl and the neck.
The wool is luscious Kashmir from The Woolen Rabbit in the color Oh! Ruby!

I do love that shawl, and have been eyeballing the pattern....

Ah well, I MUST start baby gifts asap if I'm going to get them done. NO more shawls for now!

Yours is absolutely beautiful! I love the color!

You are tempting me to give knitting with beads a try...Your Maia is gorgeous!

That color is so rich and vibrant, and a perfect match for the pattern.
