This is the last shawl, I swear! This shawl is my Ashton Shawlette, which I've called Giverny after the garden where Monet lived and painted. I had a Monet-themed room when I was a little girl, so of course I fell in love with Madelinetosh's Water Lily colorway. Several years ago, when I was working at the Cleveland Museum of Art, I saw Monet's Water Lilies in person, and I think I just stood there for a good five minutes with my mouth open. I think somewhere in my brain I thought it would look the same as it does on postcards and prints, but it's infinitely more beautiful in person!
And while I wouldn't call my shawlette a masterpiece by any means, it was a super fun little pattern with one of my favorite yarns ever. It shall hold a special place in my shawl drawer!
