I’ve been waiting to share this one with you for months!

It’s the Piha Shawl by Alia Bland (The Little Bee).

I used the brand new beautiful Spirit yarn by Scheepjes.  Sarah from Crafts from the Cwtch summed up all the details perfectly, so if you’re after an in depth review head over there – Sarah is your girl!

Some of the basics: Spirit is a 4ply yarn that looks and feels a lot like Stone Washed, plus it’s a centre-pull yarn, which we all know is the best idea ever. Each yarn is named after a spirit animal, and I’ve used Blue Jay and Flamingo.

But back to the shawl.  I absolutely loved making this.  The yarn is lovely to work with (although it’s not fun to frog, so do take care) and the pattern is so easy and just beautiful

And now the colder weather is upon us it’s a staple in my wardrobe.  Although, I just bought a new – red – coat so I’ll have to make another!

The only change I would make to this is to make it a bit bigger. I think my gauge must have been a bit off, so although it’s wonderful to wear around my neck, it’s not big enough for a shawl for me.  But, you can see that the happiness factor is high!
