Fountain Pen Shawl

RickMartin's picture

I just finished the Fountain Pen Shawl from Interweave Knits Spring 2009. I used Jojoland Harmony yarn on a US size 5 needle. It took only 2/3 of the skein - so a CHEAP gift - it cost all of $6.00 in yarn for this shawl. It is extremely light weight and actually looks good over the top of something black or bright vibrant jewel toned things. The pictures show how it washes out against some colors...oh well.

Really nice - as always - although the pattern only vaguely resembles fountain pen nibs. ;-) -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I usually really dislike color changing yarn for lace because it does not do either the lace or the yarn justice, but in this case with the veeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyyyyyy long changes it is really effective!

It is just beautiful.
