Plenitude (n) - 1: the quality or state of being full : COMPLETENESS
2: a great sufficiency : ABUNDANCE
This soft, lacy shawl, which is knit from a side point outward, is full of texture and warmth. It features repeating bands of seed stitch and lace to create a striped effect that is both strong and soft. With its easily memorized pattern and short repeats, this shawl is perfect for soothing stitch sessions.
I hope its softness brings you an abundance of comfort and contentment. I hope its brings your handknit wardrobe closer to a state of completeness. Most of all, I hope it brings you a great sufficiency of happy knitting time, those hours spent quietly moving from stitch to stitch in a semi-meditative state.
