This is my latest FO - the Goldiehair Shawl!



The lovely yarn, as well as the pattern, is by Fleece Artist and is called Goldiehair (hence, the name of the shawl.  I am nothing if not highly imaginative!). It is a silk/mohair/nylon blend!  I am a slave to the charms of the Fleece Artist, really.  It was knitted on 5.5mm needles.



It took me a few days to finish it.  Most of the knitting on it was done during a two day legal conference I had to attend this past week.  Good way to stay awake!



The pattern is extremely simple, and highly amenable to public or TV knitting.  It has also been a good antidote to my Secret of the Stole II project, which I love but which is perilously close to the frog pond.  I won't upload a pic of that here because it is still (and perhaps will always!) be in progress, but there's a pic at the blog post, as well as more info and pics about the Goldiehair shawl:

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Hi Nannetta and Crocodile: thanks! Smiley

Actually, Nannetta:  I cheated a bit on this with the beads because this yarn was not amenable to knitting them in... so I sewed them on.  However, there is a great article by Sivia Harding on the Knitty mag site: www.knitty.com on how to knit with beads, either by putting them right on the yarn or using a tiny crochet hook.  I've used both methods.  :-)

The article is here:  http://www.knitty.com/issuespring06/FEATseducedbybeads.html

Enjoy!  And thanks again.

Cheers,

Kristina

Beautiful work on your shawl!
I love that colourway of the Fleece Artist -here's hoping my LYS has some of that...
Your shawl pin looks great with it too.
