I don't think I have it in me to finish one more project, and although that means that I only have 2 Finished Objects in the Finished Object threads one of them was a doozy!
Presenting my version of Phoenix by Svetlana Loginova. (If you like shawls you really should check out her pattern store, she has some epic ones!)
I used Knit Picks Gloss Lace in the colorway Sterling. The entire piece took just under 5 skeins or 2221 yards of yarn! (This would be why I couldn't Opadoo this year!)
Size US 2 (2.75mm) needles and thin yarn, you would think would result in a small shawl...but you'd be very wrong!
63 inches square (140 cm) means this shawl is wider and deeper than my usual model is tall!
And as we woke up to a Winter Wonderland and it is snowing yet again, the model balked at getting modeled shots out in the snow...so instead I draped it as "artfully" as I could, allowed the knitting inspector to give it his "seal of approval" and made a quick collage for my finished object post!
One of my traditions is to start the new year the way I intend the year to continue...so today we will be cleaning up and setting things in place to start Monday the way we intend to go on! Happy, together as a family and warm and cozy in our little house!
I wish you the very best of things in the upcoming year!
