Ulmus

Pictures say more than a thousand words. So here is my finished Ulmus:

Ulmus-7


I love this shawl. It's beautiful! And as always with Kirsten's patterns, I'll be making another one soon. One is just not enough. Part of the fun is to pick out the yarn.

Ulmus-4

I would have run out of the light green yarn, so I started to add a slightly darker version of the same brand at the end.

Ulmus-8

This is the largest version of the shawl as givin in the pattern. My favorite part was the leaf edge. The main body got a little boring (eyes started to glaze over), but the prize of the edge border ahead kept me going. It's a well written, gorgeous pattern.

Ulmus-16

specs:
pattern: Ulmus by Kirsten Kapur
yarn: 1. multicolored light yarn: Spunky Eclectic, SW Merino, "Lichen" (lovely stuff)
2. light green: Fleece Artist, Merino/Seacell
3. darker green: Fleece Artist, Merino/Seacell
needle: 3.75mm could have used 4mm
size after blocking: 34.5" x 65"
start-finish: May 2-17

Ulmus-10

I love the little flecks of blue in this shawl. By the way, after I discovered what Ulmus meant, I was even happier with my color choice.

I LOVE the colors! This turned out so fantastic. I'm dragging my feet to knit this for some reason. I just need to buy the darn pattern already!

So beautiful! The green of the border is so lovely!

Kirsten said...

Beautiful Monika!
It has been really fun to see the variations knitters are coming up with when they run short of yarn - I love what you did with the darker color. I can see Ulmus done with graduated colors throughout the body finally leading into the solid border. Lovely.
