Shawl #9

And we're on to #9!  This going to be the last of my shawl posts for a while.  Shawl the 10th is on hold right now as I work on Christmas gifts (ohmygorsh, a post on that coming soon).

This is the shawl for which I graciously asked for help.  Long story short: I knitted until I ran out of yarn and then didn't know what to do.

And this is what I did.

Stripes.  Everything can be fixed with stripes.  Here's a pic of the whole dealy-o.

It turned out bigger than I had expected!  Here are the deets:

I used a whole skein of Sunflower Yarns Fitzwilliam in Columbus.  Again, a gorgeous color.  This shawl will not be gifted, if you know what I mean.  After the running-out-of-yarn debacle, I decided to use Knit Picks Palette in Navy, Asphalt Heather, Iris Heather, Marble Heather, and Cream.  Whew!  I wanted a slow-ish progression to the cream, and while I think that the jump between Marble Heather and Cream is a tad drastic for what I was going for, it's still gorgeous to me.

Another super warm and cozy shawl to throw around my neck this winter!


  1. yay! you totally made lemonade out of lemons! and what a great looking lemonade!
