Even during this heat wave I'm trying to work on a special gift I'm doing for my cousin. I bought some yarns of Drops Alpaca in this amazing blue color (the number is 5575, if you are curious) with the idea to knit a shawl for me. I found this simple and beautiful patter by Cabinfour. I know that the kind of wool used in the pattern is not like the one that I have, but I wanted to try. I made the mistake to show my work-in-progress to my cousin and she fell in love with it and next month is her birthday, so now I'm knitting for her birthday present! I hope even with this hot weather I will be able to finish it.
