Shetland Seas Shawl Unveiled

When we left our shawl-in-blocking yesterday, it was  in use by a certain feline:

“Do you think this shawl matches my eyes?”

She consented to assist with close-up photography, sitting on my shoulder to get a good view of the shots I was framing.

Macro shots of the beaded points.

Artsy shots of the color changes fading in the distance.

The obligatory blocking shot.

(The obligatory preblocking shot just didn’t turn out well, given poor lighting.)

Out to the porch for a few more photos.  Here’s the center of the shawl, artsy again.

The whole shawl, hanging out.

And, since Beya couldn’t operate the camera and my RockStar model is away for the weekend, this is the best I could do for a modeled shot.  I’ll see if I can get a RockStar or Gothlet pic, or get someone else to take a photo soon so you can see a shawl rather than a headscarf.

Don’t I look pleased with myself, though?

Well, a little smugness can surely be excused in a good cause, right?

Because I truly am delighted with my Shetland Seas Shawl!

I do have some notes about its making, which are here on Ravelry, and which I can put up in a future blog post if desired.  But right now, I just want to continue to bask in its lovely blue-green shading.  Happy sigh.
