My birthday was a couple weeks ago, and I got a new camera, which found it’s way into my hot little hands Saturday evening. So this morning I grabbed a couple (slightly wrinkled) shawls to play around with it.
I can’t wait to play, explore & experiment some more…
Mrs Peacock was the second shawl I ever knit in this semi-circular/crescent type shape that I simply fell in love with (the first was Zodiac le Plume) and have used a bunch since (Tumbling Deco, Mirror World, Ponycorns and Rainbow Fragments, and #2 the one with a million beads). I think this shape also started my interest with less traditional shawl shapes, (the 3/4 square, squares and circles with slits in them, etc.). I think they tend to stay on better, lay a bit nicer, and tend to be a bit more intriguing to knit and design.
And thus ends the almost full month of photos of shawls on a mannequin. Thanks for sticking around. 🙂
Originally published in partnership with The Sanguine Gryphon (sadly, no longer in existence) as part of their Film Noir line (hence the name), I knit this sample almost a year ago exactly (I think it was knit in July, but maybe August) mostly while in the Adirondacks. I love the way that the diamonds all fit inside one another and mirror each other, but then if you shift your focus the large diamonds become Xs and the focus is driven to the points where the lines cross instead of separate.
