Finished Object: Multnomah

It's been a while since I've posted about a finished object, let alone had a finished object to share!  A quick look at my Ravelry projects shows about a billion projects in process and only three completed ones in the past two or three months.

Pattern: Multnomah by Kate Elsa
Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll Handpainted in Hayride
Needles: Size 3 circular
Difficulty: Advanced beginner toiIntermediate -- it's easier than it looks!
Rating: 5 of 5 possible stars

This shawlette is a great example of the magic that can happen when you pair the right yarn wiht the right pattern.  Frankly, this pattern would be great for any variegated yarn, but I think it did this great colorway so much justice.  I loved watching how the colors changed through the feather and fan pattern as I knitted it up.  The yarn and the pattern accentuated each other, really.  The pattern was fun, interesting, easy and fast -- and now I'm completely addicted to shawls.  I've recently added three shawls and a stole to my Ravelry queue, and I can't wait to dive in!

...except I should really focus on some winter and Christmas knitting first.


  1. This shawl is so beautiful Kelly!!

  2. It is beautiful Kelly and so perfect for this time of year.

  3. Oh! I have been wanting to make one of those forever! I have one on needles right now, but the needles are killing my fingers (a cheap pair I bought a zillion years ago), so I put it aside. I think I better get me a new pair of needles and get to work. I so need one too!

  4. Oh my goodness, I am so dreaming of casting on the Multnomah, if it weren't for yule makes. And you know I have the yarn ready and everything...the exact same yarn as yours!! Right, too much of a coincidence, I think I'm going to cast on later.
    Loving yours so much.
