Yesterday afternoon got away from me; our friends who are also going to be living here just arrived and we had them over for dinner and drinks. A nice way to celebrate a new beginning for all of us!
I promised you knits and I'm here to deliver! Before our friends showed, Josh snapped some photos of my finally completed Mara shawl. The body of the shawl is knit from the top center out, ending with the beautiful pleating. Let me tell you that the body is *the* easiest knit ever, but the ribbing is a total bitch. It took me forever, but was amazingly worth it.
What do you think?
The yarn is Cascade 220 Heathers, colorway 2451 (boring, but essential facts)
I highly reccomend this; the pattern calls for 675 yards of worsted, but I used 880! The shawl is huge, comfy and really, really warm. It's also the first thing I've ever knit just for *me* and I'm so happy to have it off the needles.
What are you kittens knitting these days? I'm looking for a new project.
Don't forget to enter the Nana Cakes Giveaway! The winner will be picked this afternoon!
