Amongst several finished objects last week, I present, my Orchid Multnomah. It is so pink and so gorgeous, I can't wait until my recipient receives it.

Knit from approx. 1.5 skeins of the luxurious Sweet Georgia Cashluxe Fine sock weight yarn in the colourway Orchid, this shawl is heaven to anyone who loves pink.

I modified the pattern to make sure it's big enough to wrap without a pin like my Mom's, so I did 15 repeats of the feather and fan portion. This is my third time making this shawl, and I didn't want to waste any time with Christmas fast approaching, so I made sure to put a stitch marker after every repeat in the row, so counting was not one of my worries.

Knit knit knit I did, and I am very pleased with how this turned out! I hope the recipient loves it as much as I do!

They will be getting a special package hand delivered to their door this week that looks like this:

I found this fabulous paper at Deserres (aka old Loomis art store) - doesn't everyone want this showing up at their door on a randome cold November day?

I loved finishing this on time (in my deadline schedule) - it's my 9th shawl of the year.

Here is my Ravelry link.

Some more greatness happened this week also - I received some vividly red gerbers from the b/f randomly - so pretty.

Pretty-in-pink over and out.
