shawl-tacular



I started this thing in...March, was it? Or perhaps May? It feels like a long, long time ago. It has been abused by being stuffed into multiple different bags, and it has seen NY, MD, MN, IL, and Ireland. Soon, it will wing its way to California to Tim's mom, as a late Christmas present.



The picture doesn't really do it justice -- it's meant to be photographed over a pretty black dress or something, not on a towel, blocking in the living room. Ah well, at least it's done, and it's here in the virtual archives.

The stats:
2 3/4 skeins of Stacy Charles Ritratto Yarn (28% Mohair; 53% Viscose; 10% Polyamide; 9% polyester) at 198 yards per skein, knit on size 9 needles in a feather and fan pattern with some border stitches on each side. Approximately 6' long by 18" wide.

Very pretty! She will love it, I am sure... definitely worth the wait.
