Finished Adamas

Here it is two days into the New Year and I am still working on finishing projects from 2008. I haven't started anything new, but I do have a couple of projects ready to go.

Since I don't have anything new to show you, I thought I would finally post the pictures of the finished Adamas shawl I made for J-b and K's wedding reception in October.
The front view of the shawl shows the pattern a little better than the back view. It also shows the pretty shawl pin I picked up at Stitches East which I attended with Sheryl. The back view blends in with the color of the dress I wore for the wedding, but in real life it doesn't blend that much. The lighting was not the best to capture the pattern and it was too cold to go outside. I really like this shawl and have worn it on a number of occasions already.

Specs: Started in September. Completed by October 15th. Used just over 700 yds of Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Moccasin Trail. Knit on size 8 circular Addi's. Adamas was a fun pattern and went relatively quickly. I will probably make this pattern again.

Now onto finishing ES's socks--he had BIG feet!!

Happy knitting and spinning.
