Threnody Shawl- Knitty Spring/Summer 2012

Threnody on Knitty I am so excited! I love this shawl with all the crazy twists and wrong side row cables. Alot like the books by DM Cornish.
Tirzah Manzanita It really looks harder than it is. But I love these stitches.

Threnody is a charachter from the MosterBloodTattoo books.

Some of you may recognize the first stitch motif is the same one I used on the Regency Socks. I love the way the diamonds flow in and out of eachother in this stitch pattern.

At Sock Summit I was first introduced to IndigoDragonfly. I believe she said Tardis and there was no hope for the Whovian in me. Kez3 This shawl is so warm and lush. Perfect for the crazy Northern Californian mountains in spring...which could mean snow, rain or 80 degrees and sunshine. All in one week.

Repeating myself again...When you find good things, use them often. Right?
Zem5 The purple "lavender buds" from Holiday Yarns was from our Couer D'Or sock kits.
It is always fun using Jennifer's yarn, you never know what she is going to dye next. Staying with her is a blast as well. Lots of Laughing.

When I finished Threnody, I had to wait and wait and wait for all the rain to stop. TleeTal3 We caught a bit of sun on the last day of Spring Break, which meant a semi-close road trip was needed. Burney Falls! We had alot of fun, the out takes were pretty great.

At some point running around with all the shawls, the girls broke into Fiddler On The Roof. This is only natural when one has a shawl to drape over ones head. Singing at the top of their lungs and running up and down paths, around the falls.

By far the best was watching a 43 yr old man run around saying Yente's lines.

The Amazing glass shawl pin in the pictures is from KnittingGlassGuy aka Chris. He does glass needles, hooks and a few shawl pins as well. This one is 2 pieces, an arrow and a heart. Glass Shawl Pin It held in place quite well. Never slipped out even with all the waterfalls and climbing. Zem2 I used a bunch of Leslie Wind's shawl pins in other photos, which are not pictured except in the lil thumbnail on the pattern index.
