Tangled Up

Another post that needs a soundtrack. . . Click in and let it play while you read on!

I finished my Feather Duster shawl before I left for Chicago last week.  I didn't get a chance to block it until I returned home, and then the weather turned stormy and rainy so I couldn't take pictures right away.

I needed a break from all my sweater-knitting, and I'd had this shawl in my queue since it first came out (earlier this summer).  I even had the yarn (Schulana Kid Seta) already.  When Margene began an August Feather Duster Knit-a-Long, I was all in!

This one knit up quickly!  The pattern - by Susan Lawrence - is well-written and very clear.  The pattern is simple -- but looks so elegant.  And I'm such a sucker for mohair!  So light . . . kind of like wearing a warm layer of air!

I had thought about adding more repeats to make the shawl larger, but in the end, just decided to keep it at the dimensions called for in the pattern.  I think I'll use this more like a scarf anyway, so I don't really need to have it bigger.

And this shawl ended up doing its job perfectly!  It provided the sweater-distraction I so desperately needed!  I worked through my NaKniSweMoDo obsession, and now I'm ready to tackle my last three sweaters of 2009.  But that's for another post.

The only thing I knew how to do was to keep on keepin' on. . . like a bird that flew. . .
