Pattern: Laminaria by Elizabeth Freeman from Knitty Spring 2008
Yarn: 265grams of ViKanGarn's thinner quality. Dye lot A30; a beige and toffee coloured dye
Project time: August 5th - September 4th, 2008 (blocked September 14th-15th, 2008)
Side view of the Laminaria hanging loose over my shoulders
Project modifications: I made the Star section symmetrical by exchanging my k3tog with "slip 3 stitches individually and knit them through back loop" after the middle marker. With heavier yarn it really shows if you don't make it symmetrical. I did one extra repeat of the Blossom chart as I'm tall, don't mind a large shawl and had yarn for it.
Comments/Thoughts: This is love, love, love. I love the pattern design. I love the yarn. I love the combination of the pattern and the yarn.
