Birch, Done

Here are the promised Birch action shots. It’s not so easy to take pictures of this on a breezy day, let me tell you.

Here’s the shawl enjoying a nice day in the hammock:

Riley likes it, too.

And the “Claudia“:

This took me forever to knit, not because it was difficult, which it is not. The hand escapade intervened and took three months off my knitting life. The pattern is easy, though knitting with KidSilk Haze can be a pain at times. I love this, and will likely wear it often.

Project details will be in the next post.

  1. Beautiful shawl! I especially like the relaxin in a hammock picture. All mohair should have it so good πŸ˜‰

  2. There is something about this shawl out of that yarn that I never get tired of seeing. Lovely job. I can tell you from experience that you will love it.

  3. your birch is wonderful! i keep eyeing that ksh and wanting to knit birch again using it. so much yarn…so little time.

  4. I’m envious of your Birch and her day in the hammock! It’s such a beautiful color and looks very elegant. Yay for shawls!

  5. It looks wonderful, and if you’re anything like me, you WILL wear it a lot. It’s the perfect weight to throw over just about anything. I love mine and am tempted to make another one, just because!

  6. soooop preeetttty. Seriously though, do you actually live IN a postcard? How did you shrink that small?

  7. That is SO beautiful. I was wishing I had a Birch last night at dinner in a local VERY air-conditioned restaurant. Must.knit.shawl.next. I also really enjoyed the photo shoot, complete with pup.

  8. lovely colour for a beautiful shawl. I have just cast mine on in Trance which I love but I think i like yours better so I may have to make two;-) ( well thats my excuse and I’m sticking to it.) At the moment – only four rows in, mine just looks like a mass of teal fluff with co- ordinating stitch markers. having read all the problems with ripping kid silk I decided discretion was the better part of valour.
