Finished Knit: Chinook Shawl

I finally got around to weaving in the ends.

I rather like these colors.

You can't see the light color changes very well from the pictures, but it's really pretty in person. Knit Picks did a nice job choosing colors for this shawl.

Pattern: Chinook Shawl by Knit Picks

Yarn: Knit Picks Merino Silk in "Bare" - 33 grams/290 yards
Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in "Smoke" - 36 grams/317 yards
Knit Picks Shimmer in "Cumulus" - 38 grams/334 yards
Knit Picks Shadow in "Basalt" - 36 grams/316 yards
Knit Picks Shadow in "Soot Kettle Dyed" - 37 grams/325 yards
Knit Picks Shadow in "Oregon Coast" - 42 grams -369 yards
All held double throughout

Needles: US 8/5mm Susan Bates circular

Knitline: February 21st - March 21st. Exactly a month! I didn't know I did that until just now. 

YTD Mileage: At 1,954 yards total, my new mileage is 2.09 miles!

Happy Knitting,

P.S. Don't ever watch Steel Magnolias unless you wanna cry your eyes out. Sheesh.

Holy crap, Meg, that is beautiful! I love the way the colors blend in to each other. It looks like a cloudy sky slowly shading to night at the bottom. This is like something you should enter in the fair. :-)

Mimi said...

Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Just like everything you knit!

It is very pretty, and no I have never seen that movie so I will let you tell me about it. :)

Meg said...

Kess: Thank you! Gosh, I never thought about entering in the fair. That would be kind of crazy.

Cindy: Aww, thank you! :)

Totally on Steel Magnolias. I NEVER watch that movie for that reason!

Those colors are beautiful, Meg. I can see it with a pair of jeans and black leather flip flps...out to dinner with the muscle man. ;)

I can't believe I know someone who can make things like this. You're like the great grandmother I never had. But, you know, young and cool.

Meg said...

William, considering I love all things old fashioned and strive to be as good as a grandma, I take that as a huge compliment. Thanky :D
