Boneyard Shawl

This shawl wasn’t intended for me, I had someone else in mind when I purchased the yarn. But after working on it in Italy, Sweden, and London I became attached. None of my other FOs have been worked on in other countries!

Luckily I still have enough yarn to make a second one for the original recipient, she’ll just have to wait a bit longer (she didn’t even know about it anyway).

It’s not blocked in the photos (I was too excited) but it’s soaking in water right now. I made it with malabrigo purchased at Loop and it only took 1.5 skeins. It’s on the small side for a shawl but that’s OK, I’m going to wear it as a scarf.

The yarn was alright to work with. I prefer more tightly spun yarn (I was so afraid it was going to break when knitting) but there’s a first for everything and I can check it off my “to knit with” list.

This was a great quick knit and extremely portable!

I did 9 repeats and 10 rows of garter st.

Pattern: Boneyard Shawl

Needles: US10

Start/Finish: 7.22.11/8.7.11

Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted, 1.5 skeins

Update: I was able to stretch it to 53″ wide and 24.5″ to the point.
