I have at last taken some photos to share with you, of my Hitchhiker Shawl that I first talked about, what seems like eons ago. I have finally found a great photo taking spot in my tiny entrance hall. It is painted white and has good light first thing in the morning. Now I have a proper tripod I can actually take photos of myself in there without behaving like a contortionist. So with no further ado, I present one finished Hitchhiker.
One of the advantages of the yarn I used, is that it has so many colours in it, that is bound to work with something!
I used my lovely iKnit blocking wires to get the sharp and pointy teeth that you can see below.
Oh, and here is a shot that shows my new tripod, as I realised that I hadn't actually shown it to you yet, just it's effects.
I think this shawl will be mainly used a scarf in Winter, due to it's high wool content.
Essentially this was a nice, fun and mindless knit. It was easy to grasp hold of the concept of how it was constructed, and then after a couple of points I no longer needed the pattern.
I'm pretty sure I will knit this pattern again at some point as it is great knit club knitting. Maybe next time I'll try a semi-solid yarn.
