It’s been over a week since I finished the Aspen Grove Shawl and it’s now been blocked and photographed for posterity. Here she is in all her glory on the back deck:
The shawl is a semi-circle rather than triangle. It’s comprised of 4 identical wedges to give it that shape and that made for an interesting knit.
The increases aren’t just on the edges and up the center, they happen between each of the 4 sections. The design grows from leaves to aspen trunks to the flora and fauna of the forest floor.
Ahhh, yes, beautiful leaves.
And crazy aspen trunks.
If you’ve ever seen an aspen grove then you know just what I’m talking about.
And seemingly simple feather and fan. Honestly, I had more trouble with this simple section of the shawl than I did with any other part. Apparently, I cannot count.
It’s a wonderful pattern and the yarn suited it perfectly. It’s light as a feather but provides wonderful warmth when I throw it over my shoulders.
I just can’t resist these glamour shots of the shawl all folded up. Glorious, I tell you. Just glorious.
