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.

  9. I thought I had commented on this post...hmmm. How terrific this shawl WIP is done and the ombre array is great. You were dedicated to it and how fun to be able to rock it now.
    Man, your poor son; he knows how I feel. I had 16 teeth extracted and about 12 implants put in, two holding up my bottom, front bridge. My paternal grandfather passed down the severe bone loss genes. My dad is getting work done also as he loves his food and didn't want dentures.
