FO 2009 : Landscape Shawl(ette)
May 26, 2009
My high school best friend Laura got married this spring. It was a fantastic wedding and all the pre-wedding and wedding festivities allowed me to get back in touch with some of the best people ever.
At the beginning of 2009, I knew I wanted to make something for Laura to celebrate the big nuptials. Something simple, sturdy, and pretty. Something she would love to wear.
Enter, the Landscape Shawl by Evelyn Clark. I originally planned to make the full version, in lace weight, but ran out of time due to school commitments. I stuck with only 3 sections, but knit them until I really had to bind off in order to block it for the bachelorette party. I used Hand Jive’s Nature’s Palette wool/silk laceweight in a dark blue and since I didn’t make the big version, I have an extra skein now! I think I might need to make one for myself. I love triangle scarves, and I loved working with this yarn. And the pattern? Yes. It is a winner.
Best wishes to you, Laura, and Joe. I love you guys!
