Last September, I took my Mara shawl with me to Europe and and my mom threatened to just take it from me. I had already planned on knitting something for her for Christmas so I figured I'd just make one for her. But then Brooklyn Tweed came out with his pattern booklet and I figured that rather then repeat Mara, I'd make this one instead. The stripes are because I realized I was going to run out of the deeper Galway so I used a paler skein of Cascade 220, I couldn't find a better matter match, I alternated each colour at every repeat of the stitch patter.
