It’s been a while since there’s been any knitting on this blog, but here’s something! I finished this shawl somewhere around November last year, but somehow never got around to showing it or posting about it at all. Probably because I have been living in it (I’m wearing it right now too!) ever since I blocked it and therefore didn’t take any pictures yet. I haven’t been able to find a time for someone to help me take modelled pictures, so for now the dummy will have to do.

The yarn is from the Posh Yarn Cashmere Club, which they ran in 2010 if I remember correctly. Is it a sign of too much yarn when you have no idea in which year you acquired some of it? Anyway, it’s  soft, gorgeous, and did I mention SUPERsoft!

thiongbahru_2Here you can see it in all it’s not-quite-freshly-blocked glory. And for those of you who are playing along at home, yes that is my corselette underneath. Perfect combination of sexy and cosy, no?

I absolutely loved this pattern, although the stockinette body and the bind-off were a bit challenging for my impatient self. I’m glad I persevered though, because this is definitely my favourite shawl ever.
