Wool Peddler's Shawl

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I finally have some progress to show. I have not started on my Russian Faux Stole, as I decided to start with a simpler project and tackle that one later down the road. I did, however, finish the Wool Peddler's Shawl from Folk Shawls. I'm going to have to build up the stamina to work on a project with several hundred stitches on the needles, I can see. Even with the about 350 that this project had, I was getting bored with the repetitive pattern of the knitting. I'm excited about the finished product, though, and can't wait to cast on my next one.

That is very nice. What yarn did you use? And what size needles? I was thinking of making that shawl just to have one that is warmer than the lacy lace-weight shawls I've made in the past.

Your shawl is beautiful!
You know, I keep seeing such gorgeous finished projects from that book, but every time I look at it, the shawls look so dull and almost ugly. I can't tell if it's the way they are modeled or the yarn she used for them.

I used yarn from a local German shop here in Heidelberg. Fingering weight bluish-green colored superwash yarn. I was excited to start and couldn't wait for something to come in the mail.
