Notes

Love the pattern, love the results of adding 1 repeat and mixing in some color.

I will make this shawl again.

blogged.

In trolling my stash, I see some Shetland/Silk blend I picked up at Rhinebeck 2008 that might work. If the dark brown runs out I will use the off white as the edging.

The first two repeats went very quickly.

Stitch count at the end of each repeat:

Repeat #1: 67 sts.
Repeat #2: 111 sts.
Repeat #3: 155 sts.
Repeat #4: 199 sts.
Repeat #5: 243 sts.

I think I want this to be a rather large shawl, one that I can put around my shoulders on a cold winter morning while the coffee is brewing. So, perhaps I can add another repeat and introduce some color - a lovely pink handspun and the cream colored skein of this yarn. I could stripe it in gradually in the last repeat. This way I have a bigger shawl and I use up more stash! WIN.

9/3 started the 4th repeat. What a nice, easy pattern!

This was my main knit during Labor Day weekend, I added a 5th repeat and striped in new colors. I bound off on the ride home from VT.
Named after the Shelburne Museum which was the reason we went to VT. Fantastic place. The colors in the shawl are reminiscent of that place for sure.

I love it. The colors, the size and the ease in which this knits. It’s a fantastic pattern and it will be knit again!
