This shawl was the perfect summer knitting. It was portable and required very little brain power on my part. (Which is good for when you drop off to sleep while knitting poolside.) It was designed with Noro sock yarn in mind and as the yarn color changes, you switch from stockinette to reverse stockinette with an eyelet transition row.
The entire shawl ends up being reversible which is fabulous. I loved the name of it ~ Gaia Shoulder Hug. The thought of being able to give it as a hug sold me right away. (although it's a free pattern)
Maggie modeled it and I noticed a glimmer in her eye...she didn't want to give it back. It's a good thing for me that I have another skein of yarn ready to go!
