Faroe Seraphim by Miriam L. Felton

Yarn: Oxford Kitchen Yarns Sock Yarn – Gold (2 skeins), Lemoncurd (1 skein)
Notes: I can’t leave a good pattern alone it seems, so instead of knitting this as a triangular shawl, I knit it with faroe shaping.
Of course this meant I ran out of yarn, even though I was *sure* two skeins (850+ m) was going to be enough. That said I actually like the edging, and I think blending it in worked pretty well.
It actually finished this last December, but I remember it being a fun knit, despite only having a lace edging, rather than lace all the way through.
(ETA: Of course, it’s all Jenny’s fault. She wore her’s to the IknitLondon show last year, and I was blow away by how amazing it looked, and had to start planning one for myself. 😉
It’s a huge shawl – so much so that I can wrap it around the front of my body, and tie the ends at the base of my back (when I’m not *really* pregnant), which is a handy traditional way of wearing a shawl without having to fuss with it all the time.
Conclusion? Great shawl, which I think really showed off the yarn. I’m really pleased with it.
