Dragonhair shawl (finally!)

So, I finally got around to posting a couple of pictures of this amazing, gorgeous shawl. The pattern is the "Lace Comfort Shawl" by Sara Bradberry. The yarn is handspun dragonhair (I think the colorway was "Dragon Queen", but I honestly can't remember). It was knit on size 8 circs (mmmmm, ebony!)..and took a little over a month (I think - it was knit in my spare time, with a little time off for good behavior).

J. took this picture - it's a little dark, because he isn't real familiar with digital technology, and I didn't think to go in and edit the photo before I uploaded it. Ah, well - hindsight is 20/20.

Here's a closeup of the lace pattern - basic feather and fan/Old Shale. This shawl is neat - you start with 3 stitches and increase every right side row until it's long enough.

I really, really love how this turned out. I'm thinking I need to make me one out of the Chasing Rainbows silk (in the "More Teals" colorway) that's currently on the Norwegian. It's a yummy, yummy roving - it's spinning up like buttah, I'm getting good consistancy with, and it should ply up at about lace/fingering weight. Have I mentioned it's yummy?

Almost time to blow this joint - ciao!
