I want to thank you all for your well wishes. I am soooo feeling better. I even started back to my running this past weekend!
I can't believe February is right around the corner. Can anyone tell me where on earth January went? I thought it would be good if I shared my first FO of 2009 before a new month rolled around next Sunday. So, in it's unblocked state, here is what I call Berries and Caramel Shawl.
Pattern: Something Mary Beth created, but Iadded a different edging from her Beauty & The Bead Shawl. The edging came from Nicky Epstein's "Knitting On The Edge". For the life of me, I can't remember the name of the pattern I selected.
Yarn: Lumpy Bumpy Yarn (Colorway-Berries & Caramel); Shepherd's Shades (Colorway-Chestnut) (1 skein each)
Needles: Bamboo Circs Size 15
Started: December 31, 2008
Finished: January 3, 2009
My goal this coming weekend is to get it nice and blocked out so I can't started wrapping myself up in it! I know with the blocking, the main part of the shawl will spread out nicely and be in a good proportion to the edging.
I thoroughly enjoyed knitting with the Lumpy Bumpy. I purchased the yarn during mine and MB's outing to the knitting shop in Georgetown, SC. Every yarn in the store was 20% off that day. I couldn't stop myself from going back to the Berries and Caramel colorway. It was calling out to me and it couldn't resist from hopping into my basket.
