Cranking 'em out!


I love this pattern! Not only did it take a mere 10 days start to finish, CHECK OUT this detail:

I don't know WHY I love that point so much.... Something about the way that it curls around itself. It is just such a neat, perfect motif!!
This is number six for 10 Shawls in 2010. I didn't really think I could do it, but it is beginning to look pretty good! Numbers seven and eight are on the needles, (though I believe Brandywine is not long for this world. Poor little Brandywine.) and I am already trying to decide what number nine will be. Number nine needs to be a Christmas present.... It is already past that time!! And I still need to get another one over 500 yards done before the end of the year.... Maplewing? Artichaut? Trevi? I so love Anne Hansen's patterns, I feel like it needs to be one of hers next, and Trevi is probably perfect for one of the Alpaca Silk cones I haven't cracked open yet.

I just love being in the position of having yarn and patterns to match! The best decisions in the world!!!

Beautiful knitting, and I love your choice of yarn. :-) You might try Anne's Pine and Ivy next. I had some major issues with initially,but am now loving every stitch.
