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.

Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in "Smoke" - 36 grams/317 yards

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. :-)

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
