This FO even needed a wardrobe change

So all that crazy knitting and here I am 5 days later with an FO! Woot!

Linen Shetland
Pattern: Shetland Triangle from Wrap Style
Yarn: Rowan Lenpur Linen, 4 balls
Needles: Size 6 circulars
Details: I did 9 repeats before the edging.  I decided to not wet block it because I didn't want all the sharp points so I just steamed it to open up the leaf motifs.  I am so excited to wear this every night this summer!

I became obsessed with wanting to make this since I saw one in my many browsings on Flickr.  The pattern of course is bonafide greatness and I actually had made my mom a Shetland Shawl back in 06. Knit Flashback: 

Shetland Triangle

This one was started in June and finished in September! I remember loving that yarn too but unfortunately cannot remember what it was!

 As you all know I became a woman consumed by knitting and knitted at every down time moment  I had. The yarn helped a ton because ofter the first repeat I was just anxious to get to the end! Lenpur Linen is so soft and has such a gorgeous drape.  My LYS got a nice summer shipment of Rowan so I was excited to pick up a few balls for the shawl.  It really has worked perfectly for a nice summery scarf.

So what's next on the knit-agenda?  I got some yarn for the Zigzack Tunic and need to seam up a very patient cardigan.  Till next time, keep knitting! :-)

    Yes, I find that “old and new” describes it very well too! The yarn you chose will make it a classic to be worn for a very long time. Nice motif, very nice outcome!
