This was my final knitted item for 2013, the Colour Affection shawl. I am so very pleased with it. The pattern had been in my queue for ages but i had no firm plans or colourway decided upon when one sunny Spring Sunday i spontaneously dyed up three skeins of sock yarn in tones of strawberry and cream and realised i had my shawl beginnings.
I worked on it occasionally at home, at craft camp, and then took it to work for lunchtime knitting and Thursday lunch craft group sessions.
I cast off a day or two before Christmas, blocked it on Christmas day itself, and took some photos of it on Boxing Day. I haven't done my usual photo mosaic of knits of the year (a lot of things have fallen by the wayside lately including Christmas cards) but if i do i suspect it will be mostly shawls again. It was the year of the shawl all over again.
I did update my 2013 book/reading log though, which can be found over there on the left sidebar, on the link called Not Just Cookbooks (lame attempt at a pun).
Anyway the shawl. Yes. Thrilled with it. Wish it wasn't currently 40C so i could wear it, but hey.
Ravelled, with more photos.
