FO: Westport Shawl

I’ve finished my first project since starting work. Looks like knitting and being a productive member of society can co-exist! I was having some trouble finding a balance between the two at first, but now I’ve settled into a nice routine.

Pattern: Westport Shawl by Sarah Wilson
Yarn: Araucania Ranco Multy

I only did 14 repeats (2 less than recommended) for the middle section, mostly because I was anxious to finish. It turned out to be the perfect size.

Here are some photos.

This post is long overdue, but there’s been good reason for my absence: new job, new apartment, and finally new project on the needles.

I’m working on the Westport Shawl from the Summer 2012 issue of Knitscene. It’s the perfect blend of straight knitting and lace, just enough to keep me interested while allowing me to do some mindless knitting. I even stepped a bit out of my usual preference for colour. Look at that blend!

Stay tuned!
