I've shared the story on how this shawl morphed into something totally different than what it was intended to be. I like the colors, I like how it came out, but I will probably put this in the gift box. I wasn't able to get any modeled shots of it (I either had the weather with me and no model, or a model and it was dark and dreary) so you can't really tell how large it is. And of course, I didn't measure it. It's a bit small and while it looked great on some of my friends who tried it on at Spinning last night, I don't particularly like how it looks on me. I'm rather large, the shawl is rather small... you get the picture.
The yarn really makes the shawl - there was no pattern as I just took each row as it came and knit what I felt like. It was kind of liberating.
It's Noro Silk Sock, and while Iv'e said it many times - I will never use it for socks. But it sure does make a nice shawl/scarf.
So I have now depleted my Noro Sock Yarn stash (did I mention that great deal I had got at Webs a couple years ago?) and it feels pretty darn good.
