Pickle Pickle

Elektra (My Ravelry Page)
by Rosemary Hill (Seven Small Shawls)
Malabrigo Sock - 2 skeins Turner
Addi Turbo US 8, 5 mm
January 24 - February 3, 2011




Can't show you a new shawl without the tree shot!

Elektra is a new favorite. The shape and the drape of the fabric make it a joy to wear, and I imagine I will get a lot of use out of it!
The next time I see my mom I'll have her help me get some better pictures of this shawl actually being worn. This particular shawl just shows better when it's worn because of the placement of the lace panels. Plus, the color is pretty hard to capture...and I hope Mom's better camera can help with that as well.

It's beautiful! And look at all your snow too!

Weirdly, I had picked this as my next stash project, although I've decided I want to sneak 1 or maybe 2 other things in first, but it's in the top three! :)

I really like the colors, especially against that snowy background!

Oh, it's gorgeous! Can't wait to see it live and in person. And you made it with only two skeins?!
