It's here! It's here! 

It's finally freaking here! 

The Spruce Shawl is the companion to the Forestry Cowl. It's difficult to remember back to the motivations for this shawl. It's taken me way too long to get this pattern out of my hands. With that said, it's one of my favorite garments to wear and use when it's chilly out. It's a warm hug when I am stressed and it's just a joy to be wrapped up in. I've spent many nights cuddling this thing, so I know.

The Spruce Shawl is a triangular shawl with two sections of tree lace separated by garter rows. It makes for an easy knit on a cold winter day. The way the pattern is written, it is also easily customizable. You can continue in the pattern to make the shawl larger. (This one is a medium size) You can also use DK or worsted weight yarn to make a big and cozy shawl that will be sure to keep you warm on the coldest night. It would look amazing with some tassels too. 

For this week, because I love you, I am offering the pattern up for free on my Ravelry store. Just follow the link and you'll see the savings when you check out. Afterwards a portion of the proceeds are going to go to the Natural Resource Defense Counsel--who seek to find ways to save our natural spaces and species.

The Spruce Shawl is inspired by my need for nature. I have a lot of love for forests. There is a lot of folk lore about how dark and scary forests are. I've never understood it. They offer more in protection and security than they do in secrets and shadows. Trees are so amazing. They can stand up to almost anything, and they still offer us air to breathe. 

Thanks for being a part of this journey with me. Thanks for listening, and allowing me to go at my own pace. This life is beautiful; this world is beautiful; let's show the world some love and knit some good.
