Waves Shawl Complete
Over the weekend, I finished this delightful shawl, then came the job of waiting for a semi nice day to take photos. These cloudy days are a challenge since my house is on the dark side. Yesterday, I went outside for a few shots - the first of the season.
I'm please with how this shawl turned out. The surf shawl is a fun pattern that has some memorizable repeats. A great pattern for an intermediate to advanced knitter who is knowledgeable in chart reading. The pattern is in three sizes for versatility of yardage needs (mine is large).
Lately, I gravitate to shawls that are knit from tip to tip instead of the traditional top down triangle shape increasing from the middle. The tip to tip design adds a bit of excitement to the knitting. Also the shawl tends to be shallow in depth and easier to wear wrapped around my neck like a scarf.
I received the artyarns milano fade kit as Christmas gift (yay!). I loved the sheen of the wool and the beautiful hand while knitting. This is a lovely yarn.
