Heart Like a Wheel

The big circular shawl of awesomeness is done.


It’s 50″ across, and took about 1100 yards of Cookie‘s handspun, which is totally deserving of a closeup:


It’s mostly pinkish-purple, but has bits of blue and even a tiny bit of green in it.

The pattern is the “EZ 100th Anniversary PI Shawl: Hearts“. It’s the first time I’ve made a full circle shawl. It was fun! No purl-back rows. And the lace patterns weren’t too difficult, so it was even something I could work on in public.

    Awesome name for an awesome shawl. 😀 I don’t know what I would do with a circular shawl or I would make one.

    I have been wondering how that project was coming along. Now I know. Beautiful.
    I just finished the half circle version and am about to block it.

    I’ve thought of making a circular shawl but from what I’ve heard they are a horror to block. Yours is stunning!

    That is beautiful. I made a Pi shawl out of black handspun alpaca back in the day, so I appreciate the work that went into this.

    WOW. What an incredible amount of work. And such righteous use of Cookie’s handspun.
