This shawl was supposed to be shown off last month, but I never was able to get time to photograph it (that’s pretty much the theme of all my posts lately, isn’t it?)
This is my Age of Brass and Steam shawl, and I knit it using two balls of JC Rennie Supersoft Cashmere DK that I picked up in London (the yarn is mostly wool, and feels a bit scratchy while you’re knitting with it, but softens up delightful with a wash).
I added an extra repeat (which ended up being a shorter row count than the other repeats) because I wanted to use up all the yarn.
As written, this is a pretty shallow shawl, I think. But it’s an easy knit, and very easy to add length if you’ve got the yarn. And it looks really nice “artfully” draped over a tree branch, if you ask me.
