FO : Phoenix Shawl

Dear blog,

I have been holding out on this post, hoping to snag some better FO pictures. But I realize it's already been nearly a month since I finished the Phoenix shawl, and I'm inching towards the half-way point on my next project, so here it is :




Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy, color 'Raspberry Blaze"
Cast on US6, knit the lace using US8 and then back to the 6's for the stockinette portion.
Cast On Sep 14 and Cast off Oct 3rd.

This project was super easy. Smooth sailing, no mistakes to speak of, Gorgeous, fun, rhythmic. Hmm. It got considerably bigger after blocking, I LOVE the way the yarn knit up and it drapes beautifully. It's going to be awfully hard to give away. It's so tempting to just keep it, which is definitely proof of a job well done. Don't be surprised if you see me re-visiting this pattern in the future.
Really wish I could have gotten better pictures because these really pale in comparison to the real thing.
