I knitted this shawl using a pattern called Yarden by Nancy Whitman that I got on ravelry.
I used 2 different colorways of PIP yarn by Handsome Fibers.
MC is called Oregon Skies --- approx yarn used 380 yds
CC is called Last Revenge --- approx yarn used 180 yds
I used size 4 circulars
the pattern does not call for blocking it to points but I like points so I used a stretchy bind off on size 6 needles and then blocked this beauty with points to a size of 58 x 29
the pattern is well written and easy to follow..will be knitting this again, maybe in laceweight for me here in Florida.
Loved working with the PIP yarn! It is fantastic and I love the beautiful colors. the shawl is so incredibly soft! oh did I say that I love this yarn??? LOL!!! :thumbup:

Thanks so much! I needed a not too lacy project to do ..needed a break and when I saw this pattern I said yep this is the one...loved how the 2 colors looked together so just jumped in. wish I had a better eye for photoghraphy cause the colors are just gorgeous, but I just never seem to be able to capture them...oh well..... now back to my lacy project thats been on needles for better part of this year. dont know why I keep setting it aside to work on other things......
