This project was finished in March 2011.
I love how this shawl came out. It's an unusual construction, which is how it became part of my Nerd Wars dissertation last spring. The yarn is a silky, drapey thing that I only regret I do not have more of. It blocked nicely and looks great as a yarn and pattern match. I almost - almost! - wish I hadn't given it away!
Pattern: Emily Shawl by Mandy Moore, published in Knitscene Winter/Spring 2010
Yarn: Alina Shea Creations Grassy Feet (65% superwash wool, 35% bamboo) in Summer Fun, the June 2010 yarn club offering
Needles: Size 7 Knit Picks Options nickle-plated interchangeables
Yardage: 324 yards
I enlisted the help of then-three-year-old Spike to photograph the back. He did it well!
Sigh. I might have to make another one of these. In addition to being part of my Nerd Wars dissertation, I turned this project in to the HPKCHC for Charms, March 2011.
