Spring thaw

Do yarns/projects ever talk to you?This one here did to me. It couldn't shut up as a yarn, and had definete opinions as a shawl.
Remember I mentioned that phone-call from the second hand shop, of which the result was that my stash got feeded more than 4 pounds of sock-yarn... But unusuall, there wasn't only the bits of half-skeins, but three whole skein of Four Season.
From its composition (80% merino, 20% acrylic) I would've thought it as a sock-yarn, but it announced, it does NOT wants to become footwear. Actually it was right, as it was loosely spun, slightly uneven singles. Definetly NOT for socks.
I kept looking at it, when it blurts out it wants to become a shawl, with a leafy pattern.
After a short consultation with Angela, and the Ravelry database, it points to the spring thaw pattern, nothing else.

I wasn't even surprised, when halfway into knitting starts to whine that it wants beads on. Who am I to argue with that?

At the end, I didn't even bat an eye, when it drops that can't stand me any longer and wants to become a birthday gift to my best friend. And so shall it be.

And how lucky is that nearly sock yarn?

Lucky you to have a second hand shop that lets you know when yarn arrives! The shawl is so, so pretty - I am sure your friend will love it!
