Once again I'm so behind, not only in showing things, but also answering emails. I'm trying to catch up, but there's always so much to do!
In January, Stephen West sent me this shawl pattern to test knit. It was released in March. It's called Chevry, and was a very simple knit. I'm normally not a big fan of Intarsia knitting, but this one was easy. The only problem I had was, that I ran out of yarn, even though I had the right amount in the pattern asked for. I just left out a few rows in the end. So, if you plan on knitting it as written, see that you have more than 400yds in a skein.
I love the look of this shawl. It's not deep, but wide.
pattern: Chevry by Stephen West
yarn: Wandering Cat Yarns Barn Cat, 1 skein of each color, each skein 400yds. Colorways Booberries & Grapelicious. As I said, I ran out of color A before the end.
size after mild blocking: 25.5inches x 70 inches
The Easter weekend went by too quickly. We had a lot of fun outside, because it was sunny, but cool, exactly they way we like it!
Here's our PIA overlooking his Kingdom:

I've got Happy photos too, but that would be too much for one post. He'll get an extra one.
We all love it, when the first signs of new life are here!
