This shawl is such a dramatic shawl. I am very pleased with the way this new yarn blocked out. Lots of natural luster from the silk which compliments the nature of the fabric in the shawl.
The shape of this shawl however is very different than most triangles I have knit. It has a very narrow bottom with a big point, which of course points in a big way to the one place you might not want it to point to...haha. When you wear it over your shoulder though the way Stacey is in these pictures it is very striking. Over all a beautiful pattern that makes a striking entrance.
The sun was shining on a freshly fallen 20 inches of new snow....if you could have seen me climbing the snowbanks trying to hang this shawl in the tree, you probably would have laughed, especially when I sank in up to my waist. Thank goodness for camera straps....just sayin'.
A beautiful pattern to knit and quite easy once you get the rhythm down. Stitch markers are your friend with this one :)
