Completed Multnomah


Completed Multnomah

Finally finished this shawl, a donation for the local tea festival silent auction. The Tea Festival is an event that supports the Camosun College daycare centre, where my son attends, and at the college I work at.

This was a great pattern, very simple to knit, just straight stockinknit with increases, and then feather and fan with increases at set points. Almost mindless. And a great showcase for beautiful Noro yarn. I started the shawl with 3/4 of a skein of Noro Kureyon Sock that someone gifted to me, and promptly ran out, just into the feather and fan section. Of course it was a discontinued colour. I arranged to buy a skein off someone on Ravelry, which then got lost in the mail! So I gave up on that and sought out a similar colourway, saved a section of the teal from the first skein to tie it in, and I think it worked out fine. I'm happy with the size, it's a nice large shawl. Hopefully it fetches a good price at the auction!

The colours are so pretty together! Such a cheerful shawl will be perfect for the Spring weather that is supposed to come... sooner or later ;)
