In case you aren't bored to tears with my BitterRoot....I know at least some of you wanted pictures of the finished shawl, so here you have them.
The yarn used was a Schaefer hand dyed called Heather a merino wool and silk combination.
It is a heavier weight and after having a look at Ravelry, I think a lace weight in this pattern would be quite nice. But for the moment I am swearing off triangular shawls. I'd like my next one to be more of a rectangular wrap.
I love this little detail, sort of like a stained glass window and I wonder how designers figure these things out.
Also for the curious it took about 6 weeks of knitting a few rows in early morning and the occassional long afternoon of knitting. I'm very happy with it.
