In between getting the apartment settled and jumping into a huge new work project, I managed to finish my mother's day present. Better late than never, right?
Pattern: Brandywine Shawl
Yarn: Handmaiden Camelspin (50/50 camel/silk) - one skein
Needles: size 6 for the body and size 8 for the applied i-cord bind-off
Size: I worked 23 edging points before the final chart. I didn't measure, but the long end of the triangle is around 5' long.
Once you get past the first chart, this is a very straightforward knit (the shawl is worked bottom up from that bottom point). When I was in between work projects and had plenty of time on my hands, I found the main part of the shawl a bit boring. That said, as soon as work picked up again, this project became a relaxing break.
I can't say enough good things about this yarn. The drape is fantastic and the color just glows.
That's all for now. I've got a couple more knits that are almost done - I just need to take care of the ends and snap some pictures. Hopefully I'll have more to share later this week.
