Evelyn A. Clark Appreciation Society

I humbly present (yet) another exhibit in support of the EACAS.
pattern: Shetland Triangle by Evelyn A. Clark [interweave] {ravelry}
yarn: Sheepaints sock’n go (75% new wool, 25% nylon), 420m/100g in turkis with small amount of Regia 4-ply sock in black for edging
needles: US7/4.5mm circs
started: August 15, 2008
finished: October 29, 2008
mods: added two extra repeats of lace pattern
Even with the extra lace repeats, this shawl came out quite petite: its wingspan is 52 inches; from center to tip it measures about 22 inches.  It could have been blocked a bit more aggressively for a slighly bigger result, I assume, but since I was just using pins, I let it stand.  Luckily, I was going for a scarf, more than anything.  And it’s perfect for the cooler weather: warm, but not too heavy.  The yarn was wonderful to knit with; the color is just the right shade of turquoise.

And I squeezed every last yard out of the skein.
Once I accepted that this would not be a fabulously exciting knit, but rather more contemplative and repetative, I enjoyed working on it.  The repeat is easy to memorize — after a while I only had to occassionally give it my full attention, so that many a useless program was watched.  Good clean knitting fun.
(Apologies for a boring post.  It’s cold and dark here, which has seemed to send my brain into hibernation.)

  1. Hibernation for the brain is pretty usual around this time of year (mine’s trying to go there, too). But you got a shawl out of the deal! More than I’ve got. I love how the shawl matches the background.
