What better way for a knitter to celebrate her birthday than to unpin a lovely shawlette from blocking and to admire its beauty. And, thats what happened today! I got the pattern for Cedar leaf shawlette from Desiree as a prize in the UFO warriors challenge in the SAARC group I am part of in Ravelry. The yarn was a RAK from Bebere back in October 2009. I feel this shawlette is a perfect culmination of yarn and pattern.
With this yarn, I started knucks, a basic gloves pattern available from knitty.com but, after making five fingers and gusset of one hand, I left the project languishing in the UFO pile. When I got this pattern as a prize, I decided the yarn should become a cedar leaf shawlette and I had two skeins of it, thanks to the kindness of Bebere.
Since I like taking goofy pictures, I setup a prop on the table and shot the shawlette in different angles. Here is the outcome of my photo session:

So, today on my birthday.. I got up early, went to church with my family, came back, unpinned this shawlette from where it was blocking since last night, wrapped myself around with it and took photos to my heart's content.. I am still wearing the shawlette as I write this post. Its almost time for us to go out for a family lunch... So far, so good! Hope you are having a nice day too..
