Presenting 'Carmen'

Its knitted in Posh Yarn's Sophia 4ply. I've been working on this for a while now but the knitting has been a bit sporadic but this weekend I cast aside the socks and decided to concentrate on getting this shawl finished. I wanted a large, triangular shawl whihc was lovely and cozy to wear and this certainly fits the bill perfectly.

It measures 70in wide and 33in high and is so light and soft. It took 4 skeins (55gr skeins) of Sophia 4ply (200 yds per skein so that makes it 800 yds in total). And yes, it's my own design and hte pattern will be available for sale.

The pics are taken on a UK size 10 short model making the shawl look even bigger. I just love this shawl. It's been worth the wait.
Here it is pre-blocked this morning:

And decorating our fence:

Got another Posh Sophia shawl otn in a different design but got to finish off some socks first.

That is lovely Anni and how many skeins did that take if you don't mind me asking ?
I managed to get some of Dee's cashmere lace yesterday so am looking forward to kniiting that up.
