Its been a while since I posted even though I have been working on finishing up that shawl for Marilla (I mean my pal Leslie). As I read the first book, and watched the movie twice over, it ocurred to me that the perfect project for this KAL would be a shawl. I could not get out my head that scene where Marilla and Anne argue over Marilla's Amethyst broach and Anne admits taking the pin just so that she could go the rehearsal for the class Poem . Of course, Marilla finds the pin a few days later... as you all know and then feels horrible about having punished the girl and not believing in her!
As I was looking at my stash I came across this luscious Sundara Aran Silky Merino yarn in the Peonies over Grey Violet exclusive color... and I had an Aha! Moment! Marilla's Amethyst Shawl! What could be better?
So here it is in all ist Glory! Marilla's Ametyst Shawl. I truly believe this could have been her "Best Shawl":)
Pattern: Shetland Triangle from the book: Wrap Style
Yarn: Sundara Aran Silky Merino in Peonies over Grey Violet - 2 SSkeins
Needles: Jenkins Needles in size US 9 Circulars - Lace Needles
Cast on last year for the knit along. Frogged due to a couple of mistakes. Casted on again on 1/09/08 and completed 1/13/08.
