Additional photos

Okay, here are some other pictures. I'm notoriously horrible about taking pictures of my finished objects.

First, the Rona Lace Shawl. This is a KnitPicks pattern, made in Jaggerspun Zephyr. It blocks out so beautifully. This picture is after the fact, so please pardon the uneven pinning - I've been wearing this shawl a lot! TexAnne, I hope you like it! Finish yours already!

Next, a project from Artic Lace by Donna Druchanas. Its not really her project - just her pattern. I modified it to make a hooded scarf. Its made in Morehouse Merino 2-ply that had been aging gracefully in my stash. I started at the top of the head with a provisional cast-on, then shaped it as I knit down. I finished this just before New Year's, and spent New Year's Day 2007 watching the Honeymooner's marathon and pinning this out so all the pattern matched.

This is a beaded knit little pin that I designed to go with a faroese shawl I knit that has heart details on it. I'll have to post a picture of the shawl some day, but in the meantime, its a cute little thing. I did gift the pattern to the Knitlist (but it has errors over there) - look for the Beaded Knit Puffy Heart Pin!

Finally, here is my tallis (a Jewish Prayer Shawl). Its my own design. The lighter green is a lovely hand-dyed tencel I bought on a vacation, and the darker green is a doubled cobweb-weight merino yarn. I've since added the necessary reinforcements and tzitzit on the four corners and also knit a collar with the last two hebrew words of the blessing done in intarsia. I wear this every Shabbat.

Oh, that's sooo pretty! I'll pick mine up after Lent is over, promise!
