Done: Oaklet Shawl

July 18, 2011 1 comment

I had a fairly productive weekend, knit-wise. I managed to finish another triangular shawl with a lace edging. Go me! I’m on a roll. My Summer of the shawl continues…Isn’t is prettiful? I love this shawl. So simple.

I had to use the flash on my camera to get the colors to come out. It’s so dark and dreary here this morning. Cloudy and cool, here in PDX right now. I refuse to complain about our lack of Summer weather, here, while the rest of the country is in a serious heat wave. I keep telling myself, it could be worse. I will take the cooler weather, thank you. I think my cats will agree. They hate the heat as much as I do. 🙂

Info On The Shawl:

Pattern: Oaklet Shawl, a free ravelry download by Megan Goodacre.

Yarn: Berroco Sox Metallic, 1 skein with a bit leftover. Color: Papaya; 73% super wash wool, 25% nylon, 2% other fibers. 380 yards. (the yarn has a silver sparkly thread throughout.

Needles: US # 5 ciruclar needle.

Notions: two stitch markers used to make the center area of the shawl.

Ravelry Page: You can view more photos and notes on the shawl, here.

Mods: None.

Time: 17 days, or so. July 1-17, 2011.

Verdict: I love this shawl. It’s so simple and pretty. The pattern is well written and I had zero issues with it. I worked on this shawl (stockinette section) while watching TV and movies. Not much concentration required. The lace portion of the shawl is written out as well as charted. I used the written instructions to complete the lace part, personally. It turned out really great. The yarn is great, love the colors and I am pleased with the finished shawl. Love!
