Just a quickie post. I casted on the Brandywine Shawl last night. The pattern is lovely, but the purpose behind it is even more so. Rosemary Hill, the designer, is hoping to sell 10,000 copies of this pattern and send $5.00 of each pattern purchase to Haiti Relief. I encourage everyone to purchase a pattern, even if it's not something you plan on knitting right away (although, I can't imagine why not...this pattern is beautiful!). It's for a great cause and every little bit will help.
Here's the beginning of my Brandywine Shawl. I am using Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in the Figue Colorway. I LOVE this color and wish I could get my hands on a sweaters worth of this color.
