Queued: Stripe Study Shawl

From Veera Välimäki
I love the asymmetrical stripes on Veera's pattern, Stripe Study Shawl. It looks like the is also askew which makes me extremely curious about the construction. The knitting is all garter stitch (and whatever tricks are hidden in the pattern) so it should make for great tv and movie knitting.

I am so excited about this project that I've pushed it up to the top of my queue. Not only does it look great, but I need a new shawl. I fell in love with my first triangular shawl, but so did a lady at work, so I handed it off to her. My last one, was a bit disappointing so I am still without one. In true Goldilocks fashion, I am trusting this one to be just right. I've already found some beautiful yarn on sale. (It is a very promising start!)

I just LOVE this shawl! There was someone at the Spring Fling wearing one that I fell in love with. Can't wait to see you working on it at knit night. :)

Just writing about it has gotten me obsessing again. I have a trip to Florida coming up and I think I've convinced myself that this is the only project that makes sense for travel knitting. Maybe I'll cast on next week!
