Yay! I finished something!!

I have been on a roll-- 2 weeks in a row I have something to share for FO Friday!
This is the Azzu Shawl, that might be a gift for one of my friends. I haven't decided yet.

I really like the endless stockinette sections and the eyelets, but was disappointed with the shape. I really expected it to be narrower, and I am still trying to figure out how to make that happen.

 It really needs to be blocked, but I haven't really had the time to do that yet.

The yarn was part of a recycled sweater that I dyed for a project. I had to dye more yarn at the end, in order to finish the last few rows. I also omitted a section from the pattern because I did not want the shawl to get any deeper. Pre-blocking-it is about 17" deep and 64" long. I used a size 8 circular needle, and the yarn weight is probably sport. 

Head over to Tami's to see more FOs this week!
Here you can see the color shift when I had to dye more yarn to match.


  1. It looks good, I don't think 17" is too long although I guess it will grow a bit when it's blocked. The second lot of yarn looks like a border in the first shot, certainly not out of place :-)

  2. I like it a lot. It looks lovely unblocked. I bet it will look amazing blocked.

  3. I love the colors! I agree that 17" isn't too long (unless the recipient is very short).

  4. So lovely!! I bet you are thrilled it is off the needles :).beautiful work!

  5. That is pretty, you did a great job with the colour, it is loveley.

  6. Your did a good job with the color shift. Awesome!


I love knowing that you stopped by!
