I'm finally allowed to show my test knit for Stephen West. It was a Mystery KAL and today, everybody received the last clue, which was the border, and he allowed us to post pictures of our finished shawls.
I understand that this design is either liked or disliked, that's O.K. I loved knitting it so much, that I made two of them, both with handspun yarn of mine. So there will be lots of pictures today!
# 1 shawl made with handspun yarn from FatCatKnits fiber, the blue and red yarns, plus some undyed, natural Shetland fiber I had in my stash.
This photo shows the colors pretty well.
Stephen has two options for the border, but when we knit the test shawls, he only had one.
This shawl is big, and soft, and warm, I love it!
shawl # two was also made with my handspun yarn. The fiber for the greenish/yellow yarns came from SAG (Spinning Awesome Good), and the blue/purple one I dyed, and spun myself.
This shawl too, is very soft (has some silk in it), and I love this one also. I made both shawls size L. I was so happy to have enough yarn for this size with both shawls.
Little Miss Maggie was wondering what I was up to, usually I take pictures of her, not that weird thing standing there. BTW - she's got a doctors appointment today. She's got an infected pad on her front leg, which wont heal, since she's always ripping it open again, every time she's outside playing. Keep your fingers crossed for her, that everything goes smoothly. Thanks!
