Good Day Sunshine




My latest desgin Good Day Sunshine can now be found on knitty.com :)

Winters can be cold and dark in Norway, so when spring comes I take every chance to be outside in the sunshine. In fact, you are looked upon as kinda crazy if you choose to stay inside when you can soak up the sun. Every year, when it is warm enough to sit outside I catch myself humming Good Day Sunshine by The Beatles:

“I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about
I feel good, in a special way
I'm in love and it's a sunny day
Good day sunshine ”


This is my humble ode to Sunshine.

Estonian gathered stitches combined with eyelets create the fabric for the center of this sunny shawlette. A mix of lace and cabling is then used to flare out the shawlette into intertwining rays of sunshine, ensuring that the shawlette sits nicely on your shoulders.
