Shetland Triangle Shawl Photos

Hannah was in such a good mood on her birthday that I was able to get her to agree to pose with my finished and (finally!) blocked Shetland Triangle Shawl.

The yarn is my handspun and it’s not as light and airy as I was hoping it would be.

And it’s a tad on the small side.

But I’m happy with it, overall. I love the color.

And the pattern is wonderful.

The model isn’t half bad, either.

  1. It’s beautiful, love the color. That’s joined my todo list as a gift for Mom for either her birthday (October) or Christmas.

  2. I agree with Kathy- it will make a nice scarf. Hannah is too cute! Did you get her to sign a contract to model your handknits for you without grumbling? She did get those tickets after all…..

  3. Your handspun is such a pretty color….it will be perfect for over fall sweaters!

    Hannah looks like she is having fun!

  4. That color really is great! And Kathy’s right, it will be such a great scarf. Maybe you should give it to Hannah, it looks so good on her!

  5. Those are wonderful pictures of Hannah. She looks so beautiful and happy.
    The Shetland Triangle is one of my favorite shawl patterns. Yours is beautiful! I love the color of your handspun.

  6. Isn’t she just adorable?! You will enjoy throwing this lovely shawl over something instead of a long, skinny scarf this winter and may find it your most-worn one.

  7. Your shawl is beautiful and the color is the best! I just love it. Hannah looks beautiful modeling it.

    From yesterday’s post – what a great surprise you had for her!!!

  8. Man, why wasn’t I so photogenic at her age?!… 😉

    I think the shawl is perfect as it is, but you know, the pattern is so easy you could always knit a second one on bigger needles. I think I may need several Shetland Triangles, actually. 🙂

  9. I think it’s a great size – and the color looks great with Hannah’s brown top. Three cheers for 15-year-olds in good moods! Happy Birthday (the 3rd was my cousin’s birthday too – he’s 17)!

  10. It _is_ little, but it looks great! It looks great on Hannah too – watch out! And congrats on making a shawl out of your own handspun! That’s next on my spinning list…

  11. okay, so the transition from the second photo (femme fatale) to the third (hysterical laughter) is totally fabulous.
    you did a great job sweetie – it’s lovely, despite being small.

  12. Are you certain she’s 15? I mean, you and I are getting old, and forgetful… you should really check the birth certificate, ’cause she sure looks a lot older than that. 😉

    I had the same experience with my Swallowtail shawl – my handspun (purple merino/silk) is heavier than I wanted it to be, and the shawl is smaller than I expected. Must be sunspots, or cosmic rays, or something. Still, your shawl/scarf is quite lovely – a Shetland triangle is in my queue.

  13. What stage presence!

    So, why do you think the handspun didn’t turn out the way you’d hoped? Grist? Twist? Prep? The fiber itself? Sure looks good, and your gauge shows the lace pattern perfectly.
