FO Friday

 I present the Geology Shawl all knitted and off the needles!  I would have finished it earlier in the day but I decided to add another repeat and some more garter rows and that was a lot of stitches more and in my slower mode it took considerably longer but I am happy with this shawl.
 As usual , magic happens when you block it!  The whole thing just blooms!  It measures 50" long and 18" deep after blocking.
 There are 6 layers of texture to knit through;  I highly recommend this shawl.
There is a lot of room to play with this in relation to size and yarn, etc.  Well worth your purchase price for a very good knit!
(I used KnitPicks Stroll Kindling Tonal yarn on size 6 needles)


  1. It's really lovely. It looks like it was a fun knit with all those pattern changes.

  2. Very beautiful!!! The magic of blocking never ceases to amaze me.

  3. Wow! It's beautiful! I love it! I'm envious of your knitting skills. I've tried several times to knit a lacy shawl but have found it very difficult and frustrating. And, this one looks really complicated! I love the color of it too. Great job!

  4. turned out really nice! I'd like it a bit bigger though, but it's good to know that I could change the size easily... and I am sure the kitties are happy to have you back for cuddles, too:)

  5. Having seen you working on this shawl at my house I love to see the finished product. Great Job! Love, Mom

  6. Beautiful! And I adore the yarn.

  7. I love the finish!!! I may have to try to knit one!

  8. Looks fabulous.

    Reminds me that I have three shawls waiting to be blocked now that the weather has warmed up and the rain has gone -- I just don't fancy crawling around on the floor!


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Hat Distraction!

 I needed a hat for my Seattle son-winter temperatures have hit hard there  and since he works outside, he needed some insulation!   ...
