In these long, hot summer days there isn't much a person can do besides sit inside in the air conditioning and pray for a cold front.  With the latest heat wave making its way through central Texas, that's exactly what I have been doing.   Thankfully, I have had this amazing project to work on to keep me happily knitting away.

The colors remind me of walks on the beach at sunset, which is incidentally where I plan to wear this beautiful shawl once it is completed.  Until it cools off enough to go outside, I plan to sit and daydream while knitting in my favorite chair, a cold glass of soda by my side.

This is one of the most enjoyable patterns I have ever knit up.  The pattern itself is easy to learn and memorize, making it perfect for working on anytime.  It is also incredibly beautiful to look at.  I will definitely be making more of these using Mosaic yarn.  I love how the pattern mimics the look of the waves crashing one by one on the shoreline!  This is the perfect summer knitting project!

Oooooo....Pretty!

I was looking for a summer knitting project and was so inspired by your beautiful project that I immediately went to the yarn website and ordered the yarn. When you said it reminded you of the waves crashing against each other, I smelled the salt water! Thanks for the inspiration!

Lovely colors - and no ends to sew up!

Thank you! I can't seem to put this one down. It is such an enjoyable project!

I can't wai to join the CAL. I am a fairly new crochter and I am anxious to learn with others.

looking forward to the mystery afgan

Wrap (knit) help..I am a beginner knitter, am working on this pattern and I am having problems with the pattern row 3.!!!!! I am using 14inch needle size 5mm. I know I am not understand the row 3 instructions because on my 6 rows of knitting, I have reached the end of my knitting needle with a total of 252 stitches!!!!! and the instructions indicated to cast on 76 stitiches. I may not be understanding the (yo,K1) 6 times. what am I doing wrong? I should be maintaining 76 stitches throughout the shawl , right?

Mary.. I'm having the EXACT same problem!

The only thing I can think of is that we should be slipping the yo stitch off in the next row instead of knitting it?

I got it!!! I got it!!! And it looks just like this and SO pretty!
