Faroese Shawl - revisited

completed Faroese Shawl
January 2016
Over the extended, holiday weekend, I worked on a project that had been stalled since October. It is now finished, and I am delighted with the shawl and have been wearing it around the house since it came off the needles. It is a short shawl (18.5 inches at center back), and hits me just a bit below the elbows: a good length for keeping the chill off, but not long enough to be in the way when working or knitting. The shoulder shaping keeps the shawl neatly in place without any fussing or tugging.

I've worn this shawl every day since it came off of the needles over a week ago. I love it!

From the original 1.3 pound ball of yarn, only 3 oz. remains, which will be enough to knit a hat for the donation box.

Remember the purple yarn ball in the original post about the shawl?  It is currently being knit into another Faroese shawl. Yes, indeed, this pattern is a keeper.
