FO: Poison Ivy Shawl

I make this shawl in October 2010, but never got opportunity to snap a nice modeled photo, so it has to wait until now. This is my first experienced to work with Sundara yarn. I must admit that I enjoy working it and as you can see here the color is amazing.

Anyway, this is my third knitting shawl design, after Bella and Metropolitan Shawl. This time I tried different construction. Instead bottom-up construction, I used top-down. I must say that I prefer top-down. I also tried to use more complicated side edging.

What's New in 2011?

WoW! It's 2011 already.
Year 2010 was quite productive year for me. I managed to design and publish total of 5 designs:
1. Garden Path Shawl (crochet)
2. Bella Shawl (knit)
3. Sage Cardigan New version (knit)
4. Gathering Leaves Shawl (crochet)
5. Metropolitan Shawl (knit)

Thus, its more than my target, which is only 3 designs a year.

I got several designs that I started in year 2010 and never make it to final yet. If you remember my old posts, I mention about designing crocheted bolero. I had already started drawing the diagram, but somehow I never able to finish it.
Beside this bolero, I also have 2 knit shawls (Poison Ivy and Something Grey) and 3 crochet shawls (Cassandra, Blue Lagoon, and Almost Pinnaples) that are still in process of writing. I hope I can publish them all this year.

Thank you so much for all your support by buying my patterns all these years.
