Finished Knitted Project

Well, actually, the blocking was finished a while back but I am just now getting around to a photograph. (Anybody got a round tuit?) This is the shawl I knitted during the Elegantly Simple Triangle Shawl Knitalong. The yarn is some of my hand painted 8/2 Tencel in the Blue Bayou colorway. (Yes, I hope to get "a-round-tu" dyeing it soon.) I only used about 3 ounces of yarn. If I were a faster knitter, I think I would see how large I could make it. This one is a good size for me and in the summer, I think it will be nice worn with the tip of the triangle used as a collar and tied bolero-style. Love those empire waists!

This turned out so lovely! It looks beautiful with that sweater and pin that you paired it with. I can see this on you.

Thanks! I wonder how large it would have been had I used all 8 oz.
