Surprise! It's an FO!

One that I somehow never got around to blogging about while it was still a WIP.  I'll do that, if you don't watch me.

Pattern: Windsbraut - Sommerwind [Ravelry link]
Yarn: Elann Peruvian Baby Cashmere in Mulled Grape
Yardage: ~600
Needles: US 5
Size: 68" wide x 34" deep
Would I knit this again? Yes and no.  I adore the border pattern, which is why I chose this shawl in the first place.  I like the center lace pattern well enough, but if anything, I'd do some sort of hybrid shawl with this border grafted onto the start of a different shawl.

Readers who've been with me since the beginning may recognize this yarn...I'm almost out of it, I swear!  I just started my final ball in the last few rows of this piece.  I have plans for the remainder that involve a scrap-happy project currently in development.  I'm toying with the idea of over-dyeing the shawl in deep blue or black, just because I have these two already and I do happen to like colors other than purple.

  1. I turn around for ONE MINUTE and you've made another shawl! Tsk, tsk.

    The purple is gorgeous, though I do understand the desire to not have a monochrome wardrobe. :-P I think it would be equally gorgeous in deep blue!
