September 2013 Knitalong Butterfly Shawl
Join ANYTIME between now and November 30 . This knitalong begins on September 1, 2013, and will continue through November 30, 2013. In order to participate, hit “Cast On’ and add a photo of the Artyarns yarn you will be using for this project. You must use Artyarns or TSCArtyarns yarn for the project Please post a photo of yarn in your possession, not yarn you intend to purchase.You can use Worsted (400 yards) or DK held double (800 yards) to make the large shawl version, or Worsted (200 yards) or DK held double (400 yards to make the smaller scarf).
Starting September 1, installments will be sent to you if you are a participant, and you will be required to post a photo of Part 1, before you receive Part 2. The deadline of November 30 is just the deadline for signing up and posting Part 1. Once you have posted Part 1, there is no deadline for completion. I am not sure yet, but I expect that there will be 3 Parts in all.

Edging is adapted from 1800’s design that looks like little butterflies. This may be one of the most luxurious shawls I have ever knitted. 2 skeins of Ensemble 4 in color 1022.
