Pacific Northwest Shawl






This is the Pacific Northwest Shawl in all its glory. It seemed to take forever, but really only took about a month. I like the color I used, which wasn't something I would have picked, but it worked. I think this will get a lot of use since it's mostly wool, not heavy at all and not a real expensive yarn. And, thanks to my Baby Girl for holding it up for me! Do I list the specs? Okay, gotta go dig it all up.

Pattern: Pacific Northwest Shawl from Fiber Trends
Yarn: Phildar Preface (I guess that's the name but not sure) 70% Wool, 30% nylon.
Needles: Size 6 addi turbo circular
Enjoyed working on it and loved doing the edging. Now someone needs to make a pattern for an Atlantic Northeast or Southeast shawl, complete with star fish, quohoags and seaweed.

How lovely! Bravo! I'm on EZasPi and I just finished my pis so that I could focus on the SLW. Beautiful work on the shawl. I've been eyeing that pattern 'cause I spent a good part of my life in the Pacific Northwest (southern Oregon).

Blessings,

Evelyn
