This triangular, top-down shawl was such a pleasure to knit, mainly because of the anticipation I felt watching the colour pallette unfold from my homemade self-striping yarn ball made from small nubbins of leftover wool worsted.
I tied the nubbins together for this shawl, using a weavers knot (great video tutorial here) so there are teeny knot bits throughout, but I think that just makes it look rustic. Anyway, I like it.
I'm done that hat, and while it doesn't look exactly like the one in the shop, it's pretty nifty. I'm happy with the results of combining the classic feather and fan lace pattern with heavy worsted yarns and knitting it in the round. Now I want to try this one with different yarn, and maybe a pom pom? :)
