Here are some photos of the man-shawl I just finished last week -- Earth & Sky by Stephen West. Knitted up on size 6 circulars with DK weight Shepherd's Wool (Seabreeze, Frosty Blue, and White).
I really loved working on this project. It was my first venture into intarsia. The only thing that really was a pain was the 450+ stitch count per row towards the end. I'd get exhausted after just one or two rows of knitting.
With the left over yarn I have begun a pair of fingerless mitts. Thanks to Jenni, Terri and Catherine at the Twisted Loop Yarn Shop, it will be my first project knitted using the magic loop. I am going to be so sad to leave Minnesota and that yarn shop behind in just a few short months. My knitting has really flourished here. But I'll take what I've learned where'er I go.
