Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Manon Shawl Finished

Sister Carrie's shawl is done and ready to mail to North Carolina.

The yarn, Elann's Coto Canapone, Worsted weight, 52% cotton, 48% hemp, is now my favorite summer yarn.

It knits up like a dream, without splitting, and gets softer with each washing while still maintaining good stitch definition. Highly recommended.

The yarn is "Machine wash cold, dry flat". I machine washed it in warm water and threw it in the dryer, knowing that was OK because I first tried it on a generous swatch.
