One of the many benefits of working for a yarn store is being in the midst of genius. I work very closely with one of those geniuses on a daily basis--Rachel Unraveled.
I just finished the Ripple Effect Shawl and I have to tell you that the design, the pattern, everything about it is pure genius. I started in 9/21 and realized pretty quickly that I was reading the pattern wrong, so I started over...then couldn't stop until I was finished knitting it. I'm going to go block it here in a few minutes. It's gorgeous, the yarn I chose was perfect. I loved the knitting of it, and I highly recommend you go buy this pattern and some yarn and make yourself happy basking in the pure genius of it all.
