And Now, By Popular Demand…

OK, there was no demand,  but I’m bringing you the modeled shots of the Forest Canopy shawl anyway.

I have a pretty little shawl pin (you can just barely make it out in the second photo) which is a big help keeping the shawl in place, but it’s a little too dark against this yarn color to show nicely. Darn! I’ll have to go shopping for another one! And I’ll have to knit another shawl in a lighter color, just for this shawl pin! The sacrifices I make for my knitting…

It remains to be seen if I’ll actually wear it out and about. I saw a discussion on Ravelry that asked, “how do you wear your shawls and not look like a little old lady?” Basically the answer was, you don’t.  I think the smaller size of this one helps – it’s more of an accent or accessory. I’ll give it a try and get back to you.
