Shawls from the backlog

I finished both Ewyn and Henslowe well ahead of time and they turned out beautifully. However, I didn’t actually photograph either before my lovely BFF’s wedding, and now one of those shawls is no longer in my possession, so documentation will have to wait for the moment.

In the meantime, since I’m still playing FO catchup, here’s a couple of older shawls:

Seraphim Shawl

Pattern: Seraphim Shawl by Miriam Felton
Yarn: Tess Designer Yarns Super Socks & Baby, colorway unknown
Needles: US2 / 3.0mm Knitpicks nickel-plated circular

Knit at a slightly denser gauge, like I usually do with lace, but with no other modifications. Yarn was nice to work with, too, although I wouldn’t go out of my way to knit with it again.

This was pretty mindless as far as lace goes, but that is definitely not a bad thing here! Effortlessly pretty, really.

Another effortlessly pretty shawl is one I knit for another friend’s wedding:

Duane Park Triangle

(I know, I know, I should’ve taken a few steps to my left before this was taken. Whoops.)

Pattern: Duane Park Triangle by Kirsten Kapur
Yarn: Anzula Haiku in Chiva and Paradise
Needles: US4/3.5mm HiyaHiya sharp steel interchangeable

I knit this one on smaller needles, too. Not only do I favor denser gauges, I also need smaller shawls!

The yarn was lovely to work with, as all Anzula yarns are. I picked two colors without a ton of contrast, so the striping isn’t super obvious and looks more like a blend of the two colors, especially up close, but that’s kind of what I was going for and I really dig it.

Yay, pretty shawls!
