Kleio

DSC05638
I finished my Kleio Saturday morning but didn't want to unpin it from it's blocking until I was sure it was completely dry.  I enjoyed working on this design and I love the finished shawl.  I used Socks That Rock Lightweight in Rook-y for the main color and The Loopy Ewe Solids Series in Malachite for the contrast color.  I decreased the cast on by two repeats because I didn't have as much of my Main Color as Romi did.  The shawl still came out plenty big but I didn't have to worry about running out of yarn.  The only other change I made was to use a US 7 (4.5 mm) for the braids so they wouldn't be too tight.  The braids took a lot of time and the twisty yarns nearly did me in a few times, but I love the added texture they give to the shawl.

And since we need a glamour shot to prove something is finished, Logan stepped up to help.  This was his best photo shoot yet - perfect behavior!

I love this! I ordered yarn to do a Kleio for the Loopy Ewe 4th Quarter Challenge, but I'm a little nervous because I've never done any sort of colorwork before. Hoping it turns out as nice as this one!

A truly lovely Kleio, but that Logan is such a handsome boy!

I would like to see how you block your shawls to make them come out so perfectly. My finished edges do not come out looking so good.

The shawl turned out beautifully and Logan looks extraordinarily handsome modeling it! What a good boy he is. :-)
