Color Affection

My remote was not working on my camera so I'll get some better shots to post later.

Pattern: Color Affection by Veera Välimäki
Needles: US6 Addi Turbos
Yarn: The Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors II in Suits Him (dark gray) and Sophisticated (magenta), Alpha B BFF B in Koke (green)
Notes: Another addictive knit from Veera Välimäki! I heard that the edge can get tight on this so I did a yarn over at the beginning of each row and dropped it when I came to it on the following row. It makes the edge a little sloppy. I'd do the yarn over between the first and second stitch instead. My shawl ended up about a million feet long. I might have spaced out and done more increases on the edges than I was supposed to. No matter. It's beautiful and soft and I haven't taken it off since it dried!
