Indulging on some Selfish Knitting!

Indulging on some Selfish Knitting!

I indulged in a bit of selfish knitting over the holidays and finished (I need to sew the ends in) a week or so ago.  I don't have much in grey; it's such a versatile color.  Brora, designed by Gudrun Johnson, and knit in Brooklyn Tweed's Plains yarn in colorway Junko. 

It's a distinctive shawl, printed all over with triangles of garter stitch. The arrowhead lace edging combines garter stitch and eyelets to achieve a flintknapped texture. The pattern teaches the Icelandic Bind Off technique to yield an elastic edge that partners effectively with garter stitch. 

Pictures of it finished to follow!
