Stick A Fork In It

My latest shawl, blocking:

And being modeled at Stitch 'N Bitch (yeah, I said it; so sue me) by everyone's favorite redhead - the fantabulous Teri:

(Except for the fact that my ass is waaaayyyyy bigger, Teri looks a little like me from the back. Don't ya think.)

Pattern: Fína Hyrnan
Pattern Source: Three-Cornered and Long Shawls (Þríhyrnur og Langsjöl) by Sigrídur Halldórsdóttir
Yarn: Knit Picks Shadow in the color "Lost Lake"
Time to Knit: less than a week

I loved this pattern. It's knit from the bottom up using a provisional cast-on. Once the body of the shawl is completed, you pick up the live stitches from the cast-on and knit the leaf border.

It took approximately 450 yards of yarn to complete this shawl. Each ball of Shadow has 440 yards.

You do the math.

Running commentary on my unending quest to knit up my stash.
