One of three

It has been a while since I last posted but I have been a bit busy. I've finished three things of late but so far I have only had the opportunity to block and photograph one of them.

Here is my Brandywine Shawl.

I knitted this shawl with a skein of Tofutsies and although at first I was a little uncertain about the wisdom of this I grew to love it. And I think it has worked quite well.

I added 3 extra repeats because I wanted to use up as much of the skein as possible. I must say there is a lot of yarn in a skein of Tofutsies! The yarn also blocks very well with no retraction when I removed the blocking pins. I knitted the shawl on size 4mm needles. The shawl meausres 143cm by 86cm.

I hope to show you my other completed projects in the coming days.

Gorgeous & you have done a beautiful job. It's a perfect match of pattern & yarn. I like Tofutsie & have used it a few times for socks.
