I needed a project after leaving Reach plc, so I made this shawl. The colours are called A Hell so Scorched it’s Green (green), Dwell in Possibility (multicoloured) and Love has the Power to Change Everything (blue-purple), from Countess Ablaze via Knit with Attitude, and the pattern is Sea Swell Shawl by Stephen West. I’d had the yarn for a few months, the pattern was on my list and suddenly I had time, so it all came together.
These colours were created for Maya at KWA to reflect her feelings during the first lockdown and her desire to move from anger to hope (blog post). Hope has taken a while to deliver meaningful improvements, but with Spring underway and the third lockdown easing, I’m feeling optimistic.
