There is something so comforting about this piece. Maybe I dream of the summer nights spent around a fire with my kids on Carmel Beach. The temperature was cool; my kids were exhausted, sandy and sticky from the s'mores they devoured a bit earlier. With that feeling in mind, I cast on this summer shawl. Its eyelet flecks will remind me of those halcyon days that flew by much too quickly. Magpie Swanky DK is soft and warm like a hug from one of my daughters. I am only part-way through this beauty, but it will be around my shoulders soon (as I sit around a fire enjoying a glass of wine with Mr. Monarch!).
