Ovate Yew Shawl
Vanabag, aka Druid Bugout Bag
2009. Alpaca, ripple-stitch knit.
I began work on this piece back in the fall of 2008, finishing it just before Eostre of 2009. The pattern was fantastic because it was made up of threes and fours, which allowed me to meditate on different elements as I worked. The interesting thing that I noticed as I was finishing the shawl was that I had never worked on it at home--I was either riding the train, visiting friends, or doing something away from the house when I was knitting it--thus it got the name "traveling shawl."
