FO: Faroe Seraphim

Faroe Seraphim

Faroe Seraphim by Miriam L. Felton
My Ravelry Post: here
Yarn: Oxford Kitchen Yarns Sock Yarn – Gold (2 skeins), Lemoncurd (1 skein)
Needles: 4mm
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.

  1. That is gorgeous. I love the shading. Very pretty indeed.
    Cute little bump ! Very neat.
    You might want to invest in a pile of pillows. You know, for night time propping up. [hope it’s o.k. to say that ! Just tell me to p*ss off if you want !]

  2. Emma – I hope this automatic returning email thing is working.

    Thank you for your kind words. I would never tell you to piss off! 😉 Suggestions from other mum’s are incredibly useful – you’ve been there before me, and i’m not going to turn that kind of learning down, ever. *hug*

  3. That is the best version of this shawl I’ve seen.
    I love the way you blended the colours at the edges; it gives it a really feathery appearance without overly fussifying the lace.

what do you think?
