I've finally gotten around to photographing a few new FO's. The pic above happens to be my version of the Feather and Fan Stole from Cheryl Oberle's book, Folk Shawls.
This stole was actually an quite an interesting knit by virtue of material, unspun Icelandic wool. Yep, the whole thing is knit with pencil roving. Although, at first a bit trying to work with (the roving pulls apart easily when tugged), I found my groove eventually, enabling me to create this wonderfully rustic, for lack of a better word, knitted fabric.
I love the autumnal quality of the finished wrap and plan to make another one in black and charcoal. Methinks it will be a lovely winter accessory.
Can't wait to dig into my next Folk Shawls project. I'm definitely up for a challenge!
