Pattern: Caireen by Susanna IC, Knitty Deep Fall 2010
Yarn: GGH Via Mala
Yardage: 511 yards in stash
Needles: Size 8
Cast on: March 25, 2012
Notes: Last year I made Oslo Walk shawl, also designed by Susanna IC. I love these crescent shaped shawls and her patterns are so pleasant to work with. The yarn is a heavy 4-ply wool that I bought from Knitting Arts in Saratoga (a neighboring town) right before they closed. It turned out too heavy for the pattern, but fortunately the plies are parallel (not twisted together), and I was able to easily rewind them into separate balls. I'm glad I did. There are gaps and knots in every ball so far, I hope it's just old age or poor production.
