Sideways Ripples

Sorry for the sleepy, vaguely pissed off expression. 
It was the best shot of me wearing the shawl...if you can imagine.

Pattern: Sideways Ripples Shawl by Kyoko Nakayoshi
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in Black and Magenta
Needles: US 3 and 4 Addi Turbos
Notes: Be warned there is errata for this pattern! This is yet another iteration of the "putting a bunch of short row stripes in a shawl" shawl. They are popular for a good reason. They are damn fun to knit. Another thing I found I enjoyed about this project is that you cast on the long edge of the shawl--over 300 stitches--but then you start decreasing and your rows just get shorter and shorter. It's nice to tackle those really long rows when you have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for a new project instead of the slow but steady increase into longer and longer rows most shawls present.
