It may take a while to get better pictures, but now you can all at least have an idea of what it looks like. :) I should have bought blocking wires - the edge is a bit wiggly. Oh well, it's Shetland, I can re-block it as much as I like and it'll be fine.
Pattern: North Sea Shawl from Folk Shawls.
Yarn: Jamiesons Shetland Spindrift in "Twilight." (I think I bought 8 skeins and I have 3 left over - perhaps I miscounted?)
Needles: Knitpicks Options #5 - so useful!
If anyone wants a closer look, I'm planning on wearing it to Taos!
Update: I unpinned it this morning and put it on. I'm in love. I want one in every color. I love my alpaca Flower Basket Shawl too, but it feels very fancy and delicate. This feels like a lightweight sweater that I can just wear around the house every day. Next up, another comfortable wooly shawl, perhaps the Wool Peddler's Shawl from the same book.
