Behold Bitterroot!I popped up to Mom's today to get some pics - lighting still isn't great because I was too lazy to put on my boots and go out in the snow (not to mention Ladydoggy wanted to play ball and I didn't want to encourage her) but it's better than I'd get at my place.
It's a nice big shawl - 72 inches wide - and knit in our Fluffy Cat Fingering which makes it an absolutely decadent garment to wear. The colour is Winter Spruce - a blend of two shades of greyish-green - scarily close to the colour of my eyes - which was not the intention, I couldn't tell you how I got this colour, so please don't ask me to dye it again.
Suprisingly, I made no modifications to this one (except I left out the beads), though were I to knit it again, I would. I'm not overly fond of the first transition in the pattern:
You see the part I circled? I find it visually jarring - it just doesn't flow with the rest of it. Were I to knit this again, I'd go straight from the first pattern into the the more leafy pattern. But other than that I do love this shawl!
Yay! I finally have a Fluffy Cat shawl (Definitely NOT giving this one away!!!!)
Now, it's time to start a new shawl. I really wanted to restart the Crow Waltz shawl and use that nummy nummy handspun, but I've gotten a little distracted.....
I dyed this up last Friday. It's our Jungle Cat and the colour is "Temptress" (I can make this one again.)
Tune in tomorrow to find out which one wins!
