Wow, this turned out beautifully! So how did you make the border? I have no clue here. IT's just wonderful! And by the way, I love addi turbo's, they are sooooo sooth.


This is very beautiful. I wouldn't have thought to knit this shawl with Koigu, which is one of my favorite yarns for sock knitting, but it was an inspired choice. Truly lovely work.


Beautiful shawl! I love the colour, and it looks so warm and cozy!


Just beautiful. The variegation works very well with the pattern.


Very pretty shawl. I love that you're working through the Almanac.


Beautiful shawl, you do wonderful stocking stitch, so regular and tidy. Ofcourse the lacey border is great too.


Beautiful! I'm intrigued as to how one wears it though, being circular. Do you fold it in half (into a semi-circle) and drape it around yourself that way?

P'raps a photo of it on you?

Must get myself a pair of these turbos everybody is talking about.


Beautiful shawl. I want to see a pic of you wearing it, too!


Lovely! And very hypnotic. I found myself just sitting and staring at that picture of the center...then I felt slightly dizzy. :P I love the edging design too. It's a nice contrast to the solid pattern of the middle of the shawl.

  • "'Then I am the first,' cried Pullings with infinite satisfaction. 'Let me wish you and Mrs. Aubrey all the joy in the world.' He grasped Jack's limp, wondering hand, wrung it numb, and showed the printed page, reading aloud, '"At Ashgrove Cottage, Chilton Admiral, in Hants, the lady of Captain Aubrey, of the Boadicea, of a son and heir,"' following the words with his finger.

    'Give it here,' said Jack. He grasped the magazine, sloped the page to the light and pored over it intently.

    '"At Ashgrove Cottage, Chilton Admiral, in Hants, the lady of Captain Aubrey, of the Boadicea, of a son."

    'Well, I'll be damned. God bless me. Lord, Lord … upon my word and honour … I'll be damned to Hell and back again … strike me down. Killick, Killick, rouse out a bottle of champagne -- pass the word for the Doctor -- here, Killick, there's for you -- God love us all -- ha, ha, ha.'

    Killick took the handful of money, put it slowly into his pocket with a look of extreme suspicion and walked out of the cabin, his lips pursed in disapproval. Jack leapt from his seat, took several turns fore and aft, chuckling from time to time, his mind filled with mingled love, happiness, fulfilment, and a most piercing nostalgia."
