Silverleaf Shawl Complete


I finished this shawl last week and finally (finally!) did a proper photo shoot today.  The weather has been cloudy but I did my best.  Really the shawl is beautiful in person, but with multi-colored yarns it's difficult to capture the best photo without a close up.


I love the "leaves" the best.  The pattern calls for sport weight yarn and I used what was in stash - fingering weight!  I wish I had just 100 more yards then I would have done the exact same repeats of the garter stitch section.

However, I had to skimp and skip the final repeat.


I had a hard time getting into the groove of the pattern, but once I did, the knitting was fast!
