Kind of Ridiculous



Uuumm, so technically I finished this shawl last winter, but I'm just now getting around to weaving in the ends and blocking it. Kind of ridiculous, non? After finishing miles and miles of garter stitch, I think I was just sick of looking at it. As much as I like garter stitch, it can be mind-numbingly boring to knit. Anyhoo, it's all done now and I'm happy to add it to my winter wardrobe!

Pattern: Wool Peddlar's Shawl by Cheryl Oberle with mustaavilla's garter ruffle modification
Yarn: Rowan felted tweed in wheat (main) and caramel (accent)
Needles: Size 6

Tiffany, thanks for your interest. None of the items I make are of my own design, so I don't sell them. Maybe one day I'll get my act together and start designing my own items : )
