I was channeling the spirits of some of my favorite Masterpiece Theater heroines during the knitting of this shawl. You know, Jane & Tess & Cathy. I imagined myself facing a cruel world and the harsh elements with nothing but a long, sweeping gown and a rustic wool shawl for protection. Hand knitted, of course. Unfortunately, the only long, sweeping gown I own is an ll bean flannel nightgown.
While most certainly warm, it was not quite the tragically romantic look that I was going for. Better stick with a simple top and jeans ;)
This was a fun pattern to knit. Very easy to memorize but not boring. It was knitted with Patons Classic Wool, a nice basic yarn. I am really pleased with how it turned out & with the fact that it is long enough to criss-cross in the front. I added a big wooden button to keep everything in place.
It has one of my favorite animals woodburned onto it, a sweet little hedgehog.
Have a great weekend everyone!
