12/12 in 2012: The March Shawl Must Be Green!

In thanks/reward for designing my hat, I received five glorious hanks of Manos del Uruguay Clasica in the colorway Forest Floor. I gave two away, but saved three for myself.

I knit Stephen West's Colonnade, a beautiful and fun knit on size 10 needles. I cast on on Monday, and finished it on Friday--just barely getting it done in March!

I love the columnar lace in the Forest Floor color--it makes me think of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," with the juxtaposition of Ancient Greece and the wilds of the forest.

This shawl has a very unique construction, which helps it sit firmly on the shoulders. In a 100% wool yarn, I will definitely be reaching for this all winter.
