FO: Celaeno

Quick one for the weekend!

Pattern: Celaeno from Romi’s 7 Small Shawls to Knit. I’m not a huge shawl knitter but I want to knit all of these.

Yarn: Cashmere from Hedgehog, one skein.

Needles: 4mm Knitpicks circular.

I loved knitting every single stitch of this. Really, it was all about the yarn: the subtle changes of colour, the texture, the fibre. It was perfection itself. And it wears fantastically well. I wear it all the time with my coat on the bike and despite rain, hail, wind, sweat and the occasional distracted nibbling, it looks like new.

By the time you read this, I’ll be in Switzerland on a piano course. I hope to be in a position to post some pictures but if not, I’ll be back on the 20th, exactly one month before we get married. Squee!

  1. love how you wear it in the second photo. It looks so light and soft and drapes wonderfully! I used to think I’d never knit a shawl (even though I bet I’d enjoy the process) because I couldn’t see myself wear one over my shoulders, but a small one around my neck, like yours, that’s cute!

  2. love the shawl. haven’t really done anything like that myself. how long did it take you and what would you say the difficulty level is?
