Poor Josephine. She was started back in October but set aside first for all that holiday knitting, then Emory's sweater (which was knit, frogged, and re-knit), and finally a few samples for the shop. The poor, neglected knitting was finally rescued from the project bag in the corner of the studio and shown some love, and just in time too. She'll make a wonderful summer shawl, I'm thinking – nice and light and perfect for cool summer evenings.
The pattern is Josephine and I followed it as written, but chose not to put the beads along the bottom edge (Only because I didn't have any beads in the house when I wanted to start the project and I was too impatient to wait until the next time I was at the shop. Sometimes decisions are made that way.)
She's knit up in Koigu merino lace, colour L2410 (Isn't that the most boring colour name you've ever heard? Anne Shirley would not be impressed, I tell you.) Despite the un-imaginative name, the colour is beautiful and it was a lovely yarn to work with so I think it has redeemed itself. I still have one and a half skeins left and am pondering what else I can work on with my new friend L2410. Perhaps a cowl? Or maybe another shawl (I just might have a 'few' on my Ravelry queue. I do love a nice shawl).
