In December, I finished up taking the Russian Lace Shawl class at Fuzzy Wuzzy. I finally got around to giving this shawl a proper photo shoot over the weekend!I pretty much love everything about this shawl. I love the color, the size of it, the way everything is garter stitch! :)
Alex thinks this is the best shawl I have ever knit. And, I can't disagree with that. I love this thing!
The pattern doesn't seem to be available anywhere online. But, you could hook yourself up with The Gossamer Webs Design Collection: Three Orenburg Shawls to Knit, which contain similar Orenburg shawl patterns. Immediately following the class I got that book for myself and I found it to be very interesting.
I knit this shawl out of a skein of Fearless Fibers Lightweight Superwash Merino Sock Yarn. It's a discontinued yarn that I have been hoarding in my stash for a few years. I think this really was the perfect use for it!
I keep imagining being at Sock Summit, wearing this shawl, and people thinking I am a superstar knitter. Really, it's just that Inna is a good teacher. :)
