Rococo

I'd love for this to be a braggin' rights post showing off my Ravelympics sweater project, but although I DID earn a gold for Team Montreal in the Hat Halfpipe, I failed to make it to the finish line on my Honeybee Cardigan (which you've yet to see... heh, sorry about that), and I never even made it out of the gates on the Japanese Doily (aka, the "Outta-my-cotton-pickin'-MIND" project).

But I've been meaning to share this FO with you for a few weeks, and yesterday the lovely and talented Robyn was kind enough to do an impromptu photo shoot.

I give you another in the Romance series, the Rococo Shawl.

Knit with Cascade 220 in Japanese Maple (aka colour 2435), it was a very soothing project, very zen, just what the doctor ordered after the Holidays (oh, how quickly we forget about the madness that are the Holidays!).

It's technically a shawl, but I rather enjoy wearing it as a big, comfy, scarf. It feels like a hug every time I put it on.

More new stuff on the needles next time! (which shouldn't take 6 days. Cross my heart. Honest.)

Happy Knitting Everyone!

Your shawl is gorgeous. I can vouch for that, having seen it in person! And the color... oh the color. I'm not much one for burnt orange, but I don't know, something about that color with that pattern just do justice.

Wear it well. Hug it lots ;)

It was fabulous to see you yesterday. Hope to see you again soon. And I'll keep me eye open for that dino crust cutter for you, if I see one, I'll pick it up for you.

I have one! We don't use it (much) - wanna borrow it for a while?

I agree the shawl is wonderful, and the colour was such a right choice ;) - Nice photos Robyn...

Looks beautiful, and a lovely color too.

I need some "me" knits. Why can't people around me stop having babies??
