A finish! My first finish in several months. I am so happy!
Sorry for the bad pictures. It's late, I'm still feeling under the weather, and I don't think this shawl is very photogenic. While I am happy to finish it, I kind of wish I had chosen a more distinctive pattern. Ah, well. It's a good starter project. This shawl is very warm and should help keep me toasty this winter. Plus, I love the color!
So what's next? I get to play with this lovely gray, wool yarn.
My dad requested a warm scarf for his birthday. He even picked out the pattern! In July, when I was visiting my grandfather in Wyoming, my dad and I made a quick stop into a local yarn store and he picked out the color and yarn he wanted. The store didn't have enough skeins in one color lot, so I made a special order and it arrived just yesterday. Perfect timing!
I'm really excited to be working with such big needles. What fun!
