This time I made the larger version, and out of DK weight Rowan Baby Alpaca. It is rather large...
It turned out to be the perfect size when worn as a scarf. It has fantastic drape and is super-warm. Phew!
Very pleased with how it turned out. And no mistakes. Which is largely due to the pattern - so clear to see what you are doing.
On to the next shawl of 2012 (my knitting Year of the Shawl!). Damson, by Ysolda Teague. It's from the gorgeous Whimsical Little Knits - 2 book, which I received for Christmas. There are so many patterns I need to make from that book.
I am knitting this Damson in Juno Alice Sock, a mixture of baby alpaca, silk and cashmere. It's gorgeous. And all the colours the yarn comes in are so wonderful.
The next shawl will probably be Annis (from Knitty.com). And then I shall see. I'm not planning a shawl a month as that would be madness* (*amazing).
