i know i know i've been so quiet here this week. but there is good reason! i stayed up very late last night so that i could complete the kal by the deadline! (and maybe so i could watch the first 5 episodes of call the midwife... lol)
oh man, i'm loving this shawl! i still have to block it... it's actually headed for the bath right now.. and once it's blocked i'll be sure to get some modelled pics for you... but clearly, i couldn't wait to show it to you!
so here are the deets:
pattern: pendulum shawl by amy miller.
yarn: raventwist torc in colours djinn and black isles.
needle: 3.5mm (signatures!)
i used the garter tab cast on.. which i have to say, i love. also.. i followed the same stretchy edge as most others followed, by k1, drop yo, make new yo, m1, continue to knit.. etc...
also. i bound off using k2tog tbl, pass st back to left needle, and continue. it created a great stretchy edge, and was a fairly quick bind off considering i had 400 stitches!
honestly, this was such a great shawl to knit. i love me some easy peasy uber squishy garter stitch. yummm... there was just enough interest in this pattern to keep things moving along for me too. the pendulum effect is created with short rows, and i love the way it looks!
these two colours look so fab together. and really still make me think of the west coast. i'm so in love with this shawl, and can't wait to wear it!
so i totally did it! just under the wire. thank you projectstashEL for hosting a fab knit along! this certainly is a project "pour moi" that i will cherish, and love...
thank you for being patient with me this week.... i wish i could type and knit at the same time. lol! what are you up to this weekend? you can be sure i'll be sporting my new shawl.. as soon as it's dry! xo
