Pattern: Live Oak Shawlette by Romi Hill from the Fall 2011 Knitscene
Yarn: MadelineTosh Tosh Sock in the Fiord colorway
Needles: Size 5 circs
I blocked the Live Oak Shawlette this weekend, partially because I realized that 2011 is rapidly drawing to a close, and since I finished it in 2011, I want pictures of it in 2011.
It's nice little pattern, pretty easy, with interesting shaping. I've actually been sitting on a skein of the pattern yarn (Madeline Tosh sock) for a year or two, so it was nice to have an excuse to actually use a pattern's yarn for a change. It is a really nice yarn to work with - I can see why it seems to be the go to yarn for fingering weight projects I've been seeing in magazines and online lately.
