Testing how it can Sway

Pardon the craptastic ancient digital camera shots, but it's dying a horrible death and half my pics, including uber cute ones of Monkey2's dance recital that I really wanted, came out looking like the BSOD (Black Screen of Death). Guess what's on my birthday list this year. Well, it was also on my birthday & x-mas list last year, so here's hoping.

Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Peru in Bleck 1.18 skeins = ~ 590 yds
needle size: size 8 KP Harmony circs plus a couple extra cables

With the time change, I've been missing valuable good sunlight, so some of my earlier pics were done indoors & on my valuable Madame Folding Chair. She did such a great job w/my first Ulmus, I thought she would work well for this shawl too.

Pattern Designer: Samantha Roshak
Pattern name: Sway
Pattern release date: somewhere around the weekend of Knot Hysteria Knitting Retreat

Thanks to Monkey2 who was patient enough to do quick modelling duties rather than ride her bike when the digital camera wouldn't work for her while I tried to model the shawl.

That is a beautiful shawl. I could almost become a shawl knitter for it :0)

Lovely shawl! It's beautiful even when photographed with an ancient camera on the fritz.

So does DH know that said camera is on the 'Wish List'? Hmmm...I think I need to post to your wall and hope that Monkey 1/2 commuicates such wishes to Santa or the B-day Fairy!

Great job photographing-you should have had me get a pic of you wearing it!

Your shawl is so lovely! It looks like a great pattern. I have the camera blues myself.
