In my effort to create more small, wearable shawls, I knit myself a Berger Shawlette. I started on 2/25 and finished on 3/20, making this a perfect little project.
I will pause now so that you can reflect on the time elapsed from finishing this shawl until posting about this shawl. Part of the problem has been the weather. It’s been rainy or windy more days than not. Part of the problem has been location. I didn’t want to shoot the photos of this shawl in my back yard but rather wanted to take them somewhere special. And part of the problem has been my memory. Several times I have forgotten to take the shawl to work with me so that I could photograph it down by the pond near my office.. One day I remembered the shawl and the camera only to discover that my memory card was at home.
Yesterday, though, it finally all came together. I didn’t get pictures at the pond but rather at the very old cemetery up the street.
The iron fence made a great place to display the shawl.
And the overcast weather made some great lighting conditions.
It was a pleasure to work with and I love the blend of soft greens and roses.
How about a couple more glamour shots?
I guess these photos were worth waiting for. And now I can finally wear my shawl.
