Finally

An FO photo shoot - entirely impromptu, I brought my camera to english (which I have with the recipient), and made her stop while walking back to the dorm.

A little note about this shawl - it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped because I cast off too tightly. Ah well.



Pattern: North Roe Shawl
Yarn: Fiddlestickings Knitting Merino/silk Laceweight
Needles: Addi Lace, 3.5mm US size four.
Mods: none!
Finished size: Top was 56"!





I ordered some yarn from knitpicks, so hopefully that'll be here soon. The purple scarf is almost done, I think the slippery yarn made me knit fast! I'm also almost done with another 10 page paper! (It's due tomorrow!)

the shawl looks beautiful! I'm soooo going to have to knit a shawl soon! I think I'm breaking down on the lace. (I don't usually do the lace thing, but help! I'm being sucked in!)
Glad the knitpicks is working for you. Me, I prefer old fashioned, coarse, just-sheared-from-the-sheep wool. :)
