A smallish scarf. Knitted in Madelinetosh Pashmina, a soft and wonderful blend of merino wool, silk, and cashmere. Pattern from my favorite knitting book, Juju’s Loops. The brooch is vintage and was a gift from a friend.

Over the long weekend, I finished this shawl. Here I’ve shown it folded in half. It’s actually a large square. So large, in fact, that I’ve not yet blocked it because I have no idea where I’d lay it to dry.

I used this pattern by Gudrun Johnston, and I enlarged my shawl by knitting until each side had 150 stitches. Also, I placed the stripes differently than called for by the pattern.

The yarn is Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in the following shades: Antique Lace, Dustbowl, Flour Sack (discontinued), Luster, and Olivia.
