About a year and 3 months ago, I bit off more than I could chew. I didn't know it at the time, of course, but I took on more than I could handle when I held this giveaway and awarded 6 prizes. :) Don't get me wrong - I'm not sad at all about the giveaway. I was just so excited to get the chance to knit six different shawl designs by Kirsten Kapur that I jumped right in. I'm ashamed to admit that till now, I had only finished two shawls. Only two out of the six.
In a bid to cleanse away a bit of that shame and get the gifts to the recipients, I've finally finished two more of the shawls. They are both knit from the Snow Drops and Snap Peas shawl pattern (that was the winner if I recall. A lot of people loved it.) The red version is knit in the Hollyberry colorway of KnitPicks Swish DK. I started the shawl in October last year, and just finished in June this year.

Anyway, today, I'm here to let you know that I finally knitted something for myself!! Yay!! I don't know how long it's been since I made something for myself. I started the Xenia shawl by Vanessa Smith, but it's lying in the WIP basket because I got swamped with design submissions in the past three months. Once the Knitscene Accessories 2012 magazine came out and I saw my Sunehri Shawl in all it's glory, I decided to knit one for myself!
I originally designed this shawl in Malabrigo Worsted Merino, in the Cadmium colorway. I had just a little less than one skein left at home, so I decided to use it up in a shawl for myself. Now if you haven't tried my pattern, let me talk it up a little. I…
