Every season has its knitting pattern favorites. New patterns for shawls and baby sweaters are often posted and knitted in spring. And this year is no exception. Recently, I have been knitting a second "On the Spice Market" by Melanie Berg, which was all the rage last spring. I just finished her "Sunwalker" shawl pattern after many months of moving house, yarn stash and all. Katerina Bobkova's new "Magic Spring Shawl" is my next challenge, it's a free pattern, great for beginners and a terrific stash-buster.
