what you can do with 6 days

Do you remember that gorgeous yarn I bought last Friday ?
It's all grown up:


I'm going to wear it to the big Quilt & Craft show @ Jeff's Shed*, down in Melbourne tomorrow [ just so I can show it to Nadie,Tara, and Luz ]

pattern: yes it's another Forest Canopy Shawl [ Susan Lawrence]
needles: 5.5mm KP Options
yarn: EGMTK Sock [ no idea what the colour is called ] 610 metres
mods: 18 repeats of the main pattern and an extra repeat in the border
finished size: 78" x 40"



* Jeff's Shed is actually The Melbourne Convention Centre or somesuch but everyone [ including the Street Directory ] calls it Jeff's Shed after the State Premier at the time it was built.

not so far - most have been for gifts
there's a lot of work in them - basically I've done nothing else all week - and I'm not sure that people would be prepared to pay what it's worth.

Beautiful work, and mighty quick I might add. Did you really only buy this last weekend?

Looks gorgeous..

Do you never sleep? If not, I can tell you that insomnia never looked so good as it does in that beautiful shawl.

Wonderful job. Absolutely gorgeous. I would have had to have a break. Definitely too hard to price.

The only thing I could make in less than a week is a pair of child's socks. And only if I devoted every night to them. Wow. It's beautiful. That pattern really shows off the yarn colors.
