So all that crazy knitting and here I am 5 days later with an FO! Woot!
Pattern: Shetland Triangle from Wrap Style
Yarn: Rowan Lenpur Linen, 4 balls
Needles: Size 6 circulars
Details: I did 9 repeats before the edging. I decided to not wet block it because I didn't want all the sharp points so I just steamed it to open up the leaf motifs. I am so excited to wear this every night this summer!
I became obsessed with wanting to make this since I saw one in my many browsings on Flickr. The pattern of course is bonafide greatness and I actually had made my mom a Shetland Shawl back in 06. Knit Flashback:
This one was started in June and finished in September! I remember loving that yarn too but unfortunately cannot remember what it was!
As you all know I became a woman consumed by knitting and knitted at every down time moment I had. The yarn helped a ton because ofter the first repeat I was just anxious to get to the end! Lenpur Linen is so soft and has such a gorgeous drape. My LYS got a nice summer shipment of Rowan so I was excited to pick up a few balls for the shawl. It really has worked perfectly for a nice summery scarf.
So what's next on the knit-agenda? I got some yarn for the Zigzack Tunic and need to seam up a very patient cardigan. Till next time, keep knitting! :-)
