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!
