Pacific Shawl, redux

The second incarnation of my Pacific Shawl is blocked and ready to wear.

I love it! Here’s how much bigger it is than the first one.

It feels great on my shoulders; it’s a lightweight wisp of a thing. Just warm enough. I think I blocked it to be a little more open than the first one; you can see the difference here.

It’s funny how the smaller one is darker than the larger one; they’re two skeins of the same yarn.

I like them both. They’re same same, but different!

Pacific Shawl, pattern coming soon
One skein of Malabrigo Sock yarn, 100g/440 yards: larger shawl used nearly an entire skein
Size 6 Lantern Moon ebony needles (26 inch circular)
Size 6/0 Toho beads for edging

Time to write the pattern…
