Here is a knitting project I've had done for a while, but it was a birthday surprise for my model, so I couldn't really take pics till her birthday! She, like most adolescents had an ambivalent attitude to the gift, so I think from now on I'll just let her pick her knitted and sewn things herself... blah!!! I am, however, proud of the finished object, the yarn is a graduated hand dyed yarn called Galadriel's Crown.
Project Cost: $36
Yarn: The Unique Sheep Verve
Pattern: Ginkgo Shoulderette Shawl
Time: 12 hours, I think
Note to self: Ask Prairie Princess for gift guidance next time... but forbid puppies.
