Making Clouds Shawl~ From the Hot Chocolate Pattern Collection by Lavender Hill Knits
The Making Clouds Shawl was inspired by my son, Aaron. When he was two years old we were outside one day admiring the blue sky when he said, “Look Mom, they’re out making clouds again today!” He was referring to the long white trails, called contrails, that the airplanes were leaving behind in the sky. We spent a good long time mesmerized by the shapes the vapors created as they spread out across the sky. Aaron has always been fascinated by airplanes and dreamed of becoming a pilot. He’s older now, still loves airplanes and traveling, and maybe his dream of being a pilot will come true and one day he’ll be out making clouds.
