FO: Kimono Shawl

I haven’t even talked about working on this project, but I’ve been busily knitting the Kimono Shawl from Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle. I love how the pattern has come out, and it is just as long as I would like. It looks beautiful hanging from my window.
My only problem with the project is that the color is so close to my own skin color that I fear it doesn’t look good on me. This may go into the X-mas pile for some lucky family member. I think I may knit another one at a later date.

Yarn: Jaggerspun Zephyr in Suede from Sarah’s Yarns (love her)
Needles: Knitpicks Options 3.75mm
Size: 91×25 in.
Start: 12 May 2007
Finish: 3 June 2007

  1. That’s beautiful lacework! I do the same thing – every time I hold any lace up to a window I start thinking hum … maybe curtains?

    I’ve thought about that pattern – nice to see it worked up so well.

    I’ve got the same problem, but with ivory. It’s beautiful and I’m drawn to working with it for lace, but I look dead in it. Put a natural aran wool on me and I completely disappear. My daughter on the other hand, with her olive skin, looks lovely and warm in cream. That’s been a hard lesson for me – I fall in love with yarn colors in their pure form, but I have to remember what I will actually wear. I’ve got some yellow/orange flecked cotton that I’ve got to find a new home for because it will never be at home on me!

    Oh, took that Hogwarts quiz (gotta do something while I’m waiting) – I’m Harry with Sirius Black as a strong second. Not so sure that’s good!

  2. This shawl is absolutely amazing! What a unique and delicate pattern, and wow, it’s so huge! You did a fantastic job with knitting it up – congrats!

  3. Your Kimono Shawl is gorgeous! I love it. I am working on one myself and I’m a little concerned that it’s going to come out huge. It’s already quite large and I’m not even halfway through all the repeats. I am hoping to wrap it up in time to start the Mystery Stole.
