I love the structure, it's modular, and not like other shawls. I love the edge, even though it's a pain in the ass to knit!
and I love the yarn! It's Viola Sock, dyed by my awesome friend Emily who has an amazing colour sense.
The shawl took me just under a month to knit, and that's with the knitting olympics thrown in. It's not a hard knit, but you do have to pay attention. Every row the chart only repeats once, so you're stuck looking at the chart the whole time. And it's a big chart. But oh so worth it. I love it. Have I said that?
The one bad thing is that I really need blocking wires. Pin blocking just doesn't cut it for this shawl. I'm itching to block it again, properly, with wires.
In other news, lest you all fear I'm still stuck in the middle of a snowpocalypse, Spring has arrived in Rochester. (kind of.)
Aren't they beautiful?
Heading to Toronto for the weekend tomorrow. I can't wait!
Then NYC next weekend! for AIPAD and massive amounts of museums and galleries. Also, I'm thinking Purl Soho, and Brooklyn General.
