Simply Lovely Shawl

So this might be considered my Chanukah gift to myself, I cast it off last night.

handspun shawl done 1

Laura Chau’s Simple Yet Effective Shawl [ravelry link] done up in my handspun. Half a skein of Oliver New and one full skein of Lovesick, dyed by Funky Carolina; A full skein of Mephistopheles, dyed by Pigeonroof Studios; About a quarter of a skein of Amor, dyed by Becoming Art.

It’s not a large shawl, just perfect for slipping over one’s shoulders on a chilly winter day. Rustic and thick, it is exactly what I was hoping for when I started knitting!

Mods: cast off with a picot point cast off, did one picot every 5 stitches. Will pin them out when blocking.

    It’s beautiful! Warm, cozy, precisely the type of thing you automatically reach for when needing warmth inside and out. Happy Chanukah!

    Gorgeous! I love when different handspun yarns are mixed together in one project, too. Makes me want to get back to my Bettna sweater (almost).
