Tea and Jam Shawl Complete


Ta da!!  The shawl is off the needles, well I finished this shawl last week and only just took photos today.  I keep forgetting we are in winter and my lighting is limited.  I want to take photos when the sun is not shining and that leads to undesirable photos.


I worried that this yarn would be "itchy" to wear because of the roughness while knitting.  I adored how it knit up but against the skin?  Yikes!  However as we know soaking wool creates miracles beyond a knitter's dream.  I am thrilled to report that my worries were a waste of precious thinking time.  Good think a cold blast is heading our way, I have a new shawl to wear!!


The ravelry page is here and the pattern page is here.  The pattern was easy and fun to knit, I'll be knitting this one again, trust me.  The wool was from Times Remembered.  I purchased two skeins a few years ago at the Endless Mountain Fiber Festival.
