Finished Object Friday: Woodland Shawl

Pattern:  Woodland Shawl by Nikol Lohr
Source: free pattern published in The Thrifty Knitter
Materials: 3 skeins of Rowan Pure Wool 4ply, and US 5 needles
Modifications:  I actually followed the directions on this one!  (But I did go down in needle size.)

You all have already been hearing about my black walnut dyeing adventures in my last two posts.  Now I'm happy to be done with a project using my hand-dyed yarn.  I highly recommend this pattern.  It is one of those with enough stitch detail to hold your interest, but still easy enough to knit while watching a movie (or sitting at a red light)!

As a bonus, I think it works as a scarf too, and the "wrong" side looks good as well:

I love those leaves, now I just need to make a hat to match!
