Started in July and finished 6 days into the month, my August FO has been ready for a while. It’s been worn, admired, appreciated, loved, draped and generally justified the time and materials which went into its making.
The shawl is knit in Rowan Fine Lace which, since it contains baby suri alpaca and merino wool, is beautifully soft and delicate. There are a few beads, too:
Totally gorgeous! I think this particular shade, Jewel, has been discontinued and that’s a crying shame to a purple fiend like me.
And here’s the picot bind off:
Sadly, I’ve failed to complete this and Okapi in less than two weeks. There were several errors in the original version of the Okapi pattern and I spotted a few remaining in the revised version. Since I’ve quite a lot of tech editing work to do at the moment, I wanted something to just get on and knit.
So I’m carrying on with my Twisted Flower socks by Cookie A. You can see a mediocre iPhone picture on my project page or Instagram. Of course, they’re pink! It’s quite possible another shawl may materialise before the end of the month, but things are a bit busy right now.
