No matter how many picures, or the setting of the camera, I have been unable to capture the true, the electric blue nature of this shawl. The photos do not show the blue and purple flashing against the electric turquoise, which all in all creates a neon like color.
Even though Hamamelis spent too many months on the needles it was not because she acted up, it was because I was distracted by other shawls, other needs, the desire to give to friends and family. Hamamelis was always considered mine, as giving her to someone else seemed the wrong thing to do. Once she was back in progress the knitting went smoothly and quickly. She entertained all along the way.
Wild Woman did a happy dance when I wrapped Hamamelis around her. A little electric blue, to brighten gray and rainy month, has been the right way to go.
