i'm too lazy to take modeled photos so i had to get creative or i'd never take any pictures of this shawl.
Pattern: Live Oak Shawlette from Knitscene Fall 2011
Needles: Size 5 circs (can't remember which ones)
Yarn: Sanguine Gryphon Bugga in Acrobatic Snail
Started: July 13, Finished: July 30
so at some point i knit another shawl even though i am not a shawl wearer. it was very easy and quick and it's also very small. i had a lot of yarn leftover but i didn't feel like making it larger. i did not enjoy blocking all of those little leaves but the lace was easy to knit and very pretty. the half circle does stay on the shoulders nicely.
i made a pledge to use all of the bugga in my stash before i could buy more so i'm down to 3 skeins now. it's definitely one of my favorite yarns and the purply-blue is lovely, if different from what i normally pick. i might save this one as a gift. there's definitely nothing wrong with the pattern but i find it hard to get excited about some things especially when they were off the needles so long ago. this is one of those things.
