Frostrosen is Finished!

Frostrosen Done

I finally got my poor Frostrosen Shawl finished. This was not a difficult shawl to knit and with the size of the yarn and needles, it wasn't even a particularly long knit. But if you throw a huge Knitalong and pattern design in the middle of knitting it, you get a 4 month project. I started it in April and finished it over the weekend.

Frostrosen Done2


Here are all the stats and useless information. The pattern is Sharon Miller's Green Moss Shawl*, and I worked the smaller version. I used handspun yarn from The Knotty Sheep's Kitchen Sink Batts in Frostrosen instead of using Kid Silk Haze as the pattern calls for. I used US 7/4.5mm needles and I did work it in the garter stitch the pattern calls for. I don't think I made any changes to the pattern - like I said it's an easy knit and really enjoyable. My blocked measurements are 74 inches wide along the top edge and 35 inches long from neck to lower curve (it's a half circle shape - not a triangle shawl).

*Her patterns are not cheap, but if you look at the Special Offers in her site, you can buy 3 patterns and get 1 free or get a free pattern with the book Heirloom Knitting.

Very, very pretty. I love how it is draped over the Kromski spinning stole.

It looks great. I really like the color and the shape. I'm swatching for my first real handspun shawl myself.

Stunning! Lovely job, and those things that proceed over time feel oh so good when they are done, don't they? You weren't kidding about the patterns being pricey!

This shawl looks just wonderful. The more lace I see, the more lace projects hop on my wish-list.
