The Phoenix and the Carpet - Clue 2

I took a mental health day today.  I was getting my piano tuned and there has been some stuff going on at work that has me pretty stressed and I just needed a day off.  So I spent the day knitting.  It was exactly what I needed.  This pattern is especially soothing to me.  It isn't a difficult chart and the geometry and symmetry of the pattern is pleasing to the eye as well as the soul.  I have decided to call this shawl the Golden Phoenix.  Here's to rising from the ashes.


  1. I really like your color and pattern pairing here. I am a sucker for yellow, but I also agree that the geometry and symmetry of the pattern are especially pleasing. I hope your week improves!

  2. It's very pretty! Yep, mental health days really do help. You go back to work energized.

  3. Thanks :-) I don't know if I would go so far as "energized" but I'll settle for "able to face the stupidity"
