Odyssey is done! I got done knitting it on Thursday and got it blocked overnight.
Here is a closer shot of the lace sections. Mom has it and is considering a fashion shoot with it, so I may get some daytime photos of it one of these days.
The pattern is Odyssey Shawl by Joji Locatelli – this is a great pattern – not complicated at all, well written, and very nice results! The yarns are skeins I bought through the Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em program.
The dark brown yarn is Leicester Longwool, the medium brown is Jacob, and the cream is Gulf Coast Native. The Leicester Longwool is very silky and drapy and reminded me of alpaca a bit. The Jacob is a rustic, springy yarn. Not rough or scratchy, but definitely some texture. The Gulf Coast is kind of fuzzy and grippy. I know that’s not that descriptive, but that’s the best term I can think of for it. Very happy with how it turned out!
