Two Pretties

Some long ago finished projects I want to share!

Textured Shawl

Pattern: Textured Shawl Recipe by orlane
Yarn: Blue Sky Suri Merino color #411; 2 skeins
Needles: Addi 24″ US 8
Measurements: Small shawl; neck wrap
Started: April 15, 2009
Finished: April 29, 2009
Other Details: I don’t quite remember when I started and finished this, but it was such an easy and relaxing knit! I didn’t even come close to having enough yarn to make it through the 28 garter rows, but thats okay. It is a little small to fit around my broad shoulders, so it looks like I will be wearing it more tied in front.

And another project for a super sweet friend’s birthday –

Simple Yet Effective Handspun Shawl

Pattern: Simple Yet Effective Shawl, by Laura Chau
Yarn: Handspun Pigeonroof Studios
Needles: Addi Lace 32″ US 4 (3.5mm)
Measurements: About 45″ across top and 20″ down center
Started: May 4, 2009
Finished: May 10, 2009
Other Details: I had fun knitting this again in some gorgeous handspun… I started and finished it while we were camping in SE Utah.

Sorry for the not so great pictures! We snapped these a few weeks back, right before a huge thunderstorm moved through. Awell!! I have so many other things to catch up on: gardening, our utah trip, some spinning… We are leaving for Boston on a red-eye tonight but am planning on blogging on our travels. Maybe we will even have some pretty pictures from Maine!
