A flurry of finished objects – part two

The next two FOs are both Andrea Mowry designs. The first is the Om Shawl, a versatile little number that’s sure to get lots of use once the weather turns chill again this fall. It’s a rectangular shawl with buttons along the bottom and about half way up one side that allow for a wide variety of configurations.

I started it last November but had to put it aside both for Christmas knitting and my Swirl sweater knit-along that started in January. So, I’m sure pleased to have finally gotten this one from WIP to FO status. I also enjoyed trying my luck with two-handed stranded knitting in the blended color sections. It’s a fun technique and one that I’m really keen to get more practice on.

Next is another shawl, the now ubiquitous Find Your Fade. It’s a wildly popular pattern, and for good reason. It’s flexible enough to have some fun, with the eyelet and color melting sections making things interesting just when you might be getting a little bored with the garter stitch sections.

They’re so colorful, you can really wear these shawls with just about anything.

And, as with the Om Shawl, the Find Your Fade can be a shawl, a scarf, a throw – it’s up to you how you want to use it.
