I am **THIS** close to finishing my Ella coat. I just need to sew down the buttonhole facing one more time (I don't want to discuss it). Since I don't have a spiffy new coat to show off today I will show off a gorgeous new shawl instead.
The pattern by the awesome GlennaC was the December yummy Indigodragonfly Smartass Knitters/World Domination package this year. 700 metres of lucisious polwarth silk blend, dk weight, super skein of fantasticness.
I started the shawl in late February, knit on it like crazy, then Ella and her ruffles muscled her way into my life. After I triumphed over the ruffles I went for the easy win and finished the shawl this weekend.
Lovely, squooshy moss stitch, a pointy pretty border. Perfect for my chilly morning bike ride to work.
