FO Friday: Satisfaction

You know how sometimes when you’re working on a project you spend the entire time questioning. Why did I pick this yarn? Why did I sign up for this KAL? Why did I pick this pattern? How many more rows until I’m done? I can honestly say I didn’t ask a single negative question the entire time I knit my Multnomah. The pattern is so easy to follow and well written. The yarn I ordered from The Loopy Ewe, Swan Island Natural Colors in slate, is lovely. The yarn feels nice when knitting with it and even better once it’s been blocked. Trying a new yarn and a new pattern was a total win. The combination of yarn and pattern make for a perfect finished item.

    It’s gorgeous and I’m jealous. I hope to make another shawl someday…you know, after I block the one I already have 🙂


  2. Vivianne says:

    That color is too subtle for me; seeing way too much of it in the weather right now too 🙂


  3. It’s gorgeous! Mine’s still blocking at the moment but I’m hoping to show it off next week. It’s such a great pattern isn’t it, really enjoyable to knit 🙂

    It’s lovely! Hope you enjoy your next shawl as much as you did this one. 😀


  5. Gorgeous! I’ve yet to do a KAL — too much else on my plate and I’m just trying to keep my head above water!


  6. The perfect example of right yarn, right pattern, right knitter. Lovely.

    really lovely 🙂 I’ve had my eye on that pattern, and I think yours just bumped it to the top of the queue!


  8. Helen says:

    beautiful !!! 🙂 🙂


  9. It’s lovely – it looks like a very elegant bat the way you have photographed it!

    It’s so awesome when a project is fun all the way through! And when you’re happy with the FO, too, well. Is there anything better than that? Great shawl.


  11. It’s so lovely now that it’s done, although I imagine it might have been tedious through the body of the shawl. Doesn’t it go with everything in your wardrobe? And such a classic neutral – you could dress that up or down!


  12. Kepanie says:

    That is a great opinion to share. You must definitely post that on the project page.


  13. Faith says:

    What a lovely shawl! The color and the drape look simply divine.


  14. Pumpkin says:

    I really like the color (then again, I love most of the colors you pick, great taste). I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed it so much!

    It is so lovely in grey! The yarn sounds wonderful to knit with.

    Beautiful 🙂
    But I have to admit that when the image first loaded … I thought … holy hell that’s a huge bat! LOL … Seriously though … it is subtly divine. I’m glad that it turned out to be such a wonderful experience from start to finish.

    Another shawl! All my firends are knitting shawls! And I love yours. I’m inspired to start one myself.
