Holes on purpose

Look what Cathy just finished.
Pattern: Esjan (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: Woolstok - 3 colours, 2 skeins each
This top down shawl starts with easy garter stitch. Two contrasting colors are added with a giant holey lace pattern. The holes increase in size while also adding stitches to the overall semi-circular shape. The fabric is knit loosely with a worsted weight yarn resulting in a deceivingly fast large shawl.
The shawl was a quick knit. Cathy took the yarn last week and viola. It's finished and blocked. She said that we can hang it in the store for a while. Does a while mean all winter so that I can wear it??
I carried my friend to the back of the parking lot for more pictures. The shawl fell of her shoulder which worked out well - you can see how big it is.

The yarn for Melanie Berg's True Colors arrived this afternoon. The colours scream fall.

We've been asked about the price of the yarn - $130. This does not include the pattern - you can purchase it on Ravelry. I already have my copy.

Everything for Camp is ready. Now it's time for an hour of relaxing and knitting.
