As promised, I have my second Hogwarts Express shawl to share with you. This time I knit it in Candy Skein Yummy fingering, November colorway, Mulled Wine. I used black matte square beads, which I wasn't sure about at first, but loved in the end.
I actually already gave the shawl to the friend it was intended for, because I wasn't sure when we'd be seeing her for Christmas. Rather early than late I say! I think it was the best reception I've ever received for a hand knit, and made my week. Not only did she adore it and praise it, she also called a few days later to express how much she loved it again. There's nothing better than that. I'm so honored she will cherish it.
That's it for me today. I hope you have an amazing weekend and stay warm!
Share your FO!
