WIPped: Kimono Shawl

I finally finished the project that has consumed the entire summer. There are a few more loose ends to tie up, blocking, inserting a drawstring, general shoring up, but for the most part it's done, freeing me up for the WIP pile.

Last night, I fell upon the kimono shawl from Folk Shawls. It's a wonderful, compelling knit, not-too-hard, not-too-easy, just fine for light conversation; just avoid discussions of collapsing financial institutions and the meaning behind the bail outs, or you might miss a yarn over.

The yarn is Brooks Farm Solo Silk, a splendid single-ply of 50/50 wool/silk that unspools off the ball and into pretty lace like a pro. There are many glorious examples of this shawl on Ravelry. I will post a photo, but the light now has that soft morning color that makes for gray digital photos, so later.

You may have noticed a few changes here at ol' Nake-id Knits. For one, there's a new RSS feed thingy, so you may not be getting Nake-id on bloglines anymore. If you're dying for your daily dose, you can resubscribe using the button top right or subscribe to a feed using the menu item "Feed" in the left-hand column. The Ravelry ID is nakeidknits.

What do you think of the eggs-in-stocking-caps shot in the banner? Another change.

Be well. Knit hard. See you Monday.
