Land Ho!

Yesterday I officially finished knitting the Shipwreck Shawl. Phew. I ended up watching four seasons of Law and Order: SVU while making the shawl, which comes out to around 65 hours. So, I am naming the shawl Law and Order. Seems appropriate.

A new dilemma arises though. Originally I was going to dye the shawl using the instructions from Knitty. But I'm not so sure anymore. This is where all you readers come in. Should I dye the shawl as seen in Knitty, or should I leave it as is. Please vote. I am equally divided.

What Color Should The Shipwreck Shawl Be?


In other news, my camera is starting to give me problems. This morning the camera portion just wouldn't turn on. Only preview worked. So it looks like I'm going to be saving up for a new camera. I'm just happy it worked long enough for me to get a few pictures of the shawl and the beautiful day out by the mill.

I totally want to make one for myself, it's gorgeous! But thinking about how long it took you and how knitting proficient I'm not. . .perhaps I'll wait a while. :p

I really love the white, but you know it wouldn't stay white for long and I would hate it to be ruined! the grey is pretty toooo

It was a surprisingly easy knit. There were hard parts, but for the most part it was not bad.

That's good to know. I definitely want to try it. I think I'll tackle it after graduation.
