Falling Leaves Shawl



I began this shawl on June 21, 2013 and finally finished it on July 26th. It's called a Stora Dimon Shawl from the book "Folk Shawls" by Cheryl Oberle. This is the second one of this pattern that I have knit and it is my favorite. Because it is a Faroese style shawl there is shoulder shaping that keeps the shawl comfortable on your shoulders without slipping. I wanted to finish it before the Fall, and I am so pleased that it's done.

I used Madeline Tosh DK weight yarn in 'Magnolia Leaf' and 'Filigree' (the green lace pattern)

This is the thing on my needles. I'm back to comfort zone of fingering weight yarn with size 4 needles. The color is Zarzamora and it is my favorite brand, Malabrigo, in sock weight. The pattern is from VeryBusyMonkey (VBM) and is called Geology. It has bands of patterns and, if I can wade through the somewhat page turning directions it will be lovely! You should check out VBM's patterns. they are really special!
