This is a long over-due post for this shawl. I completed it last summer, but wanted to wait until it was received before posting anything about it. It took a long time to hear back from the recipient and then I forgot to post this. So, here it is! With pictures, even!
Pattern: Cameo Shell Stitch Shawl
Started: July 20, 2007
Completed: August 10, 2007
Yarn: Laines Du Nord Soft Light, 10 skeins, coloway 456
Needles: US 10.2 bamboo circular
Notes: This was a pretty easy knit and I’m pleased with how it came out. The yarn was a little more rough once it blocked than it was in the skein, which was somewhat disappointing. I made this for the Prayer Shawl Swap last summer. The recipient was Kimi (blogless) who did let me know she received it and loved it. I never did receive anything from the swap. It seemed like a number of people flaked and the moderator flaked as well. It was a huge disappointment to me and has put me off swapping ever since.
