Fall is my favorite season!  But often when September first hits, it is still too warm to wear sweaters and most of my cozy garments.  This striking shawl bridges the gap perfectly.  I just submitted my subscription order, so I hope that my first issue is the fall 2012 issue so that I can make this shawl!  By the way, I saw the Falling 4 Fall context, but the URL/biy.ly link to the rules does not work, so I'm unsure how to participate.  Anyway, glad I am recently learning to crochet and glad that Interweave is here to provide so many wonderful patterns.  I may be a beginner, but I still want a elegant or chich or sophisticated project to work on, and there are so many great possibilities here on crochetme.com.
