Fir Cone Shawl

In recent news: I am almost finished with my fir cone triangular shawl I am very happy with how it is turning out. I still have to add the edging, which is going slow. Very slow... I am currently almost half way done with the edging (7 repeats short), and have decided that it is at the ad nauseum state. Here are pictures for those of you out there who are curious.
Here is the beginings of my shawl back a month or so ago:














And here is it in its current state:














Yesterday it was absolutely beautiful out, I took Helen, my spinning wheel outside to play, and we quite enjoyed the sun. One of my aquaintances, Bret another History major, brought out his camera and took some pictures of us in action. I was spinning some lovely romney, mohair roving in a blue colour way from the fair.














Here she is later that day soaking up the sun through the blinds. I absolutely adore my spinning wheel by the way. I know that she is only a plain Ashford Traditional Wheel, but she fits the bill.

Thank you for visiting my site.
Interesting question...I guess it would look okay on a guy. Mais, je ne sais pas. Based on my culturally constructed ideas of gender, I think purple and pink would look a bit wierd. On the other hand, there is no earthly reason why a guy couldn't wear my shawl, other than the fact that my shawl is intended for me. I gave away the last shawl to my mom, and I am keeping this one.
