I've finished this shawl for a (long) while now, but sometimes there's too much to show, but not enough time.
When I saw this Wandering Cat Yarns Continental Cat yarn, I knew exactly what I was going to knit with it. A Carson shawl by Romi Hill. The colors, especially of the Merlot one, are richer, deeper, but I never got it quite right.
Right from the start I said I would love to knit this shawl as a circular shawl, and Romi wrote some notes for us, to do just that. Some used heavy yarns to make it a Carson Afghan, but I wanted to use fingering weight yarn.
Anyway, I love how it turned out, even though I made couple of major mistakes (which you can easily see in the next picture), which I only saw, when I was blocking it. I knit tow rounds, where I should have purled, and it shows. Oh well. It's staying with me, so I don't feel too bad about it, except that I'm wondering, if I'll EVER be able to knit a shwal without at least one mistake in it.
Note the snow free deck, it really has been a while.
Once again, it was the edge that drew me to this shawl at first glance. That happens a lot with Romi's designs. I used the simple edge, but it can be expanded, if there's enough yarn, and/or desire to do so.
I've used it to warm my shoulders, but I think it will rest on my coffee table in my studio for now.
