taste, texture, scent, and colour in a dish always brings me joy, and this shawl combines several elements but still is a cohesive whole, much like a chef-style meal. Knitting is like cooking if you combine quality ingredients, a great recipe, and a love of the process, the results will be delicious!

Take time to check your gauge to ensure the shawl is large enough and you have enough yarn. (Personally I like to live dangerously and don't bother swatching for shawls, but I have to put this here so that people
playing yarn chicken don't blame me if they lose).
