That's how long it took me to finish my Print O'the Wave shawl:
Pattern: Print O'the Wave by Eunny Jang, a free pattern. I added an extra repeat to the width, but it blocked so well I wouldn't have needed to go through the extra effort. I omitted the center graft by completing one center panel. It looks just fine.
Yarn: Handmaiden Sea Silk (mostly silk, some tencel and a teensy weensy bit of seaweed). Beautiful drape, sheen and stitch definition, thankfully it smells neither of silk nor seaweed. My only complaint surrounds the colour. I ordered three skeins from Ram Wools on final sale. They sent me two skeins of one dyelot (wheaten in tone) and one in the ivory that I was expecting. I alternated one of each dyelot for the main body, and used the remaining wheaty one for the edge.
Needles: I found it worked best with one Bryspun and one Boye aluminum needle, both US size 4. It was too sticky with two Bryspuns, and too slippy with two Boyes. And forget the Addi's or Knit Pick's Options - the stitches jumped off those shiny beasts.
This was knit to wear for our 25th anniversary in 2007. It wasn't finished in time and I thought it would look strange to wear it with the needles hanging off. It does give me faith that I can rescue a couple of other projects from knitting limbo. Or would that be purgatory?
Now, about the couple of non-knitters who commented on my lovely table cloth...
