Shetland Triangle

I wanted to get a photo of me wearing this before I blogged about it. But it's been done since August and that hasn't happened yet. I've worn it. But never remember to get out the camera.

Shetland Triangle Shawl

Shetland Triangle Shawl

I finished this Shetland Triangle (pattern in Wrap Style) July 5, just before Henry was born. I blocked it in August with my new Knit Picks lace blockers (awesome!). I love this shawl. It is so pretty. The yarn is Handmaiden Sea Silk, one jumbo skein that Larissa bought for my b-day in 2007. Normally the skeins are about 400 meters (437 yards) but mine was 600 meters (about 650 yards). There was some mixup somewhere and Handmaiden ended up with bigger skeins for a limited time. Lucky for me b/c this allowed me to do 13 repeats of the pattern to make it a nice sized shawl.

This was meant to be a nursing shawl. But the first time Henry spit up, I realized that sea silk plus baby is a bad idea.
