Outdoor shoots

This is one of the weekends which I prefer to laze at home. Before the weather turned cloudy, I went out to get more pictures taken.

Hold your breaths!

First up is the first FO this month.

Pattern: Diamond Fantasy Shawl by Sivia Harding
Yarn: 3 balls of Elann Far East Collection Cashmere Silk, 50g ea, 177 yards.
Needle: 3.75mm Inox circulars
Size: NA
Time to finish: 1 week? or less?

I really love knitting this shawl. The yarn was burning a hole in my stash and i really need to do something with it. This cashmere silk was acquired through a swap quite sometime ago. It got quite warm to knit as the shawl grew bigger. I still had 1 ball of it left.

The pattern was very easy to follow after a few repeats, especially the edging. What an ingenious way of creating an edge! I did a little different in terms of the "s1, k2tog, psso", I think i mentioned about it HERE.

And I think I own you knitters pictures of Lady Eleanor. Here goes:

Seem like the Lady loves the outdoor a lot.

Added: Thanks for all the kind comments. Sometimes I need a little of these to keep my knitting up and going.

Very nice, indeed!--those two patterns are on my list, also. Also, I love your use of subtle colors--I always go for the showy colors but don't always like the results.
