'Sunshine and Shadow'. My Version Of Marc Smollin's Pterotactyl Shawl

The large wingspan and generous sizing
 makes this a favorite shawl for me. It was difficult to get the entire shawl into the image - so it's a small picture!
I'd been working on this shawl for some time and now it's finally finished. I love it! This is the Pterotactyl Shawl by Marc Smollin. It was an easy going pattern. It's a perfect size, generous - not too small and not too big. A perfect summer shawl or winter large scarf
 I used one of my favorite yarns - Tosh Merino Light in "Candlewick" (I need to buy another skein of this luscious yellow) and "Zhivago Sky" which is a blued gray that I also really like.
 I love the tactile (as in PteroTACdyl) elements of this shawl. Simple but so effective!
On my needles now is the Enchantment Shawl.  I started it last night after I fingered through my stash and found two skeins that will, I hope, play very well together! I have a feeling that I am going to like this one too! 

As I work on  my little embroideries it's a constant choice whether to knit or embroider. I can't think of anything that will make me not want to knit though - I think that now I will always be a knittter, no matter what else I do as well
