Land of the Midnight Sun Shawl - releases December 8th!

I love the silent hour of night,
For blissful dreams may then arise,
Revealing to my charmed sight
What may not bless my waking eyes.
-Anne Bronte

On this last day in November, the morning light shines on a NEW shawl design that is fresh off the needles; it's nearly dry from washing and blocking. Oh it's so cozy!! I can't wait to wear it. The design, LAND OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN SHAWL, will release on my website and in my Ravelry store on December 8th. It is knit in Aran or Heavy Worsted Weight yarns with size US 7 needles. 

Norway is in the {Land of the Midnight Sun} as the northern part of the country is above the Arctic Circle where the sun shines 24 hours a day starting mid-May through mid-July. My mother and I went to Oslo, Norway when I was a teenager. I have vivid memories of us arriving on May 17th, their annual Constitution Day, when masses of people were celebrating in the flower-lined streets while we tried to maneuver our jet-lagged selves with bulky suitcases to the hotel. While in Oslo, we enjoyed delicious food, especially at a corner restaurant that we frequented for several meals. Being a teenager, I didn't fully appreciate the historical places that Mom took me but I was quite smitten with the fancy hotel bathroom and mile-high bed!

Oh how those nights getting ready for bed were magical as we'd draw the heavy, dark curtains closed to out the bright 'midnight sun'.
