How Can You Forget A Whole Finished Project?

That’s me, right there, someone who forgets a whole knitting project. You’d think that with as few things as I finish, I’d remember to put them up here.

This is the Hawk Affection Shawl.

Sorry about the no-makeup-photo-in-the-mirror thing. It’s all I’ve got today.

Project Details:

Pattern: Color Affection, my second one.

Yarn: Hazel Knits Divine, this is 75% merino, 15% cashmere, and 10% silk. It really is divinely soft and squishy. The colors are Nekkid, Hawkeye, and Collegiate, chosen to represent my favorite football team.

Needles: 3.5 mm

Started: September 3, 2015

Finished: February 10, 2016

For: Me

Modifications: None, really. I once again knit the three color stripe section until I had used all the stitches up with the short row section.

What I Learned: I love simple knits. And I am really starting to love simple knit things that wind around my neck for a touch of color and warmth. And I learned that I probably should take a moment to put on makeup and do something with that mess of hair before I do a photo shoot. I got off the bike, took a shower, and my hair just did that thing up there. Oh well.

  1. So pretty – you’ve now made two of these and I still need to make my first!

    I thought the photo looked nice – of course, you should see me when I let my hair just dry. Kinda looks like damaged corn silk … 😉

  2. The shawl is gorgeous, as is the ‘model’! I’m with you on simple knitting projects lately. Good pattern, nice yarn = a win, win! Think I’ll have to make one in my New York Giant colors for next season.

    By the way, what are the kind of blocking blocks that I see in your photo that you use?

  3. That is just such a striking knit! Congrats on getting it done.

    And since I last work makeup more than a decade ago… 😉

  4. Happy belated blogoversary. As others have said, the shawl and its wearer are beautiful. 🙂
