Bridgewater Shawl

I had started this laceweight shawl back in October. I could work on the pleasingly repetitve garter stitch central squaree before bed and it went rather quickly. By Christmas, I decided to revisit it and wondered if I could finish it over the holidays. I wound up completing this the evening after I returned to work in January. the whole thing is almost 1800 yards and it took me around 130 hours to complete. I love it. It’s light yet warm and I wear it at the office every day. Thanks to Jared Flood for this Elizabeth Zimmerman-inspired Shetland Shawl design!

I had to make a point of stopping home at lunch so that I could get a few photos of it with natural lighting…

Here’s Grace, who managed to wrestle the shawl from my grasp and wrap herself in it…

Of course, Hunter needed to investigate as well…

The rest of these photos were taken by Mare at the Lily Lake Pavillion at Rockwood Park in Saint John (which is a great little pub/restaurant if you haven’t been there yet.)
