Pattern: Forest Canopy
Yarn: Posh Yarn Victoria, Gothic, 440yds 190g.
Modifications: One less pattern row for the edging due to lack of yarn, otherwise, as written
A nice size I think and a fast knit in the aran. Took a full 24 hours to dry and the blocking makes the aran feel light and delicate :o) A beautiful yarn in my favourite colours.
One thing I learnt from knitting this straight after the Queen of the Waves was that a plain triangular shawl doesn't actually fit on my shoulders very well. I intend to try to come up with a design in the faroese (sp?) style one day.
Meanwhile back to all things HipKinterly and more shawl later today, first i am off to my other other job to do some eBay listings or my boss will be wondering what i am up to :o) I do know I'd rather knit, but someone has to pay for all this yarn LOL Stashalong relatively effective, that PY Victoria Gothic has been sitting in my stash for a year or so. It feels good to finally have it knitted up and wearable.
I had a good look at the Lady pattern last night and it's doable and mainly gs but I'll need to keep a good track of how many rows as there's shaping on almost every row to get the bias shapes required, looking forward to it, but I may delay the start until I've gotten a little further with the Hipknits Shawl.
