Rock Island, part 2

August 7, 2011

I left you last (several weeks ago now) with a shawl teaser.

I think I pretty much said all the needed to be said about the making of this shawl, all that was left was some project photos and the story of how they came to be.

Well, back at the end of June I found myself killing some time before a tattoo appointment in a park on the lower East Side of NYC. The weather was gorgeous and my Mr. and I were enjoying people watching on a Sunday morning, when I suddenly realized that I had a shawl with me that had yet to be photographed. I put my Mr. to work right away on fixing that.

By his own admission, he’s not very good with a camera, but with a bit of direction he managed to get some nice shots.

It was far too hot to wear the shawl for real that day. Just wearing it for this mini photo shoot made me pretty sweaty. I’m looking forward to the change of seasons so I can get a bit more use out of it.

I have several more skeins of this yarn in various shades and I loved this project and the finished product so much that I may just make it again. I also recently discovered another (free) pattern that is very, very similar to Rock Island called My Heaven which I might also try.

      It was lots of fun to make once I got past the edging. I didn’t want the garter stitch to end!
