Spring Green in the Summertime

The Adamas Shawl is finished after one long knitting day.  I had intended on getting many other things done yesterday but with the ‘one more row, one more row…’ mantra echoing in my ears I just couldn’t put the shawl down.  The final rows each had 399 stitches so it was slow going at the end.

Pattern – Adamas by Miriam Felton

Yarn – Shadow by KnitPicks

Color – Spring Green Heather

This straightforward pattern was well-written and the pattern was intuitive after a few repeats.  I continue to adore my Addi Lace Turbos and this shawl was knit on size 5’s.

And no matter how old one gets, what girl can ever resist twirling with a shawl?  A shawl is kind of like wearing a big circular skirt or a ballet tutu and brings out the girlishness in us all, right?

  1. Your shawl is beautiful! I’ve had that pattern on my list for quite awhile and now that I see yours, I may just have to try to knit it. I even have the same yarn.(vbg)

  2. The shawl is gorgeous of course – but this time around it is the photos that I love the most!! The background makes me homesick for Woodland Park and the last 4 of you are so much fun – great post!

  3. The shawl, the color, it’s so worth flaunting. So many shawls, so much wool, and so little time. I keep asking myself how many new shawls I really need at my age. That’s not the same as”How many shawls do I want?”

  4. The shawl is gorgeous & you have taken some wonderful shots. I do find shawl knitting addictive like the one (milkweed) that I am knitting now & can’t put it down.
