This shawl is enormous - as you can see in this photo I took while it was blocking, it's longer than my massage table (which, if you're interested, is a good 75 inches in length). I used three colors of The Fibre Company's Canopy Fingering, which is one of my new favorite yarns - alpaca, merino and bamboo. It's delightful to knit with.
Pattern: Color Affection by Veera Välimäki
Yarn: The Fibre Company Canopy Fingering
Based on some project notes by fellow Ravelers, I started with a larger amount of stitches in an effort to avoid the "bump" at the beginning. For the first two sections, I increased two stitches for each row, omitting the 4-stitch increase every fourth row. For the short-row section, I knit the pattern as written (I think - my notes started getting a little spotty) til I ran out of the main color. From that point, I switched to Sarsparilla and knit 'til I ran out of that, binding off with just a few yards to spare!
