The Landscape Shawl is finished, blocked and wearable.
All I can say is that I love it. Look at that lovely shade of green! I don't have nearly enough green in my wardrobe. Unless you count cardigans... this is my only green shawl, at least!
Pattern: The Landscape Shawl a Fiber Trends pattern
Yarn: Brown Sheep Naturespun Fingering Weight in Artic Moss
Changes to the Pattern: Well, I'm not sure, as I didn't really follow the pattern that closely. I used it mostly as a "guideline". I used an I-Cord bind off but the pattern was so straight forward, that it wasn't really necessary to change anything.
Problems with the pattern: ya, like I read it... I got a feel for what I was supposed to do, then just knit. So I don't think there were any issues.
Overall Impression: This is a great project. It gets tedious near the end as the rows get really really long, but since the pattern is pretty obvious, it was just a matter of knitting. I can definitely see me knitting this again.
So it feels good to get something off the needles... uh-oh, I now have empty size 6 needles! That only means one thing here at Chez Park! A new project!! Right? Well, maybe, as I really do have a lot of things I want to tidy up... with a goal of finishing 3 more projects before the year is done.
Today I'm running up to Olde Peddler's Wool to discuss me teaching some classes. Eeeek! We'll decide what and when, then probably talk Floyd Landis and biking (as Darlene and I always do!). If you're not keeping up to date with the Floyd Landis case, it's getting pretty weird... and my heart goes out to him and his family as more and more things are happening that makes the whole thing stink. (Trust But Verify has the most comprehensive updates... and Debby is even quoted in yesterday's post!!!)
Well, off to shower and get ready to head up to Morgantown!
