On Sunday, I taught my Monsoon Shawl Workshop at Trillium Yarns in Morristown NJ. As you walk down the street, you can't help but notice the pretty storefront. Step inside and you will see that Beverly has stocked her store with a beautiful selection of yarns. It was exciting to see what yarns and what colors my students chose for their shawls. Everyone chose a different color and they all looked great. The Monsoon Shawl is one of those patterns that works with many colorways. Basically, I don't think you can choose a wrong color.
Look at all these knitters working hard on their Monsoon Shawls. For my class, I provided written instructions for the knitters that may not be use to reading from a chart. The magazine only provides the charts for the pattern. To my delight, many of them decided to challenge themselves and work from the chart instead of the written instructions.
I am so proud of these ladies.They worked really hard to learn all the techniques and stitches involved to make the Monsoon Shawl. Hopefully, I taught them some new things that they have never tried, but I definitely know that they are now all ready to tackle that shawl. You can't tell from this picture, but there is one special lady in the back that started her shawl before coming to class and was almost done by the end of class. I hope all my students put up pictures of their finished shawls on Ravelry so I can admire them.
