I have so much to talk about, but all of it is overshadowed by my glorious, finished, awesome, warm, lovely, soft, glowing Swedish Heartwarmer Shawl.
Thanks to Emily for taking the photos at Rhinebeck (I will post about that this weekend).
I felt like a knitting rock star while at Rhinebeck. And the ladies at Sanguine Gryphon took a few minutes to ogle my work (thanks for that!). This is truely the nicest thing I've ever knit. It's perfect. And while it was a bit of a slog to get it done before the trip, it was an absolute pleasure to knit. The pattern was clear, the yarn fantastic, the rows were long, but I got into a groove. Even the icord just sorta happened.
In the end the hardest part was the knitting monogamy. I really now want to get all slutty with my knitting and cast on 100 things. That is what I think of knitting monogamy (and modeling).
Pattern: Swedish Heartwarmer Shawl from Handknit Holidays
Yarn: Sanguine Gryphon Bugga in Forester Moth (dark teal), Longhorn Beetle (Red), Bronze Moth (Gold) and Southern Green Stinkbug (Light teal green).
Finished: October (with the summer off because it was too big to knit without making me all sweaty)
Technique: Knit flat using two-handed fair isle. The wrong side rows were knit backwards, also in two-handed fair isle.
