Winner of the Knitscene Fall issue...

And 4 skeins of Zitron Lifestyle in Grass #59 to make my Colfax Shawl is KnitNurd! Please email me at oiyi.yau(at) gmail (dot) com with your mailing address.
Colfax Shawl
Before sending off the sample to Knitscene, I made sure to take some quick photos. They keep the sample so I wanted to make sure I had a record of it before mailing it off and saying goodbye to it forever. I didn't have time to ask a friend to model, so Melody stepped in. She loves shawls, so I didn't have to beg or bribe her.

Since it's a full size shawl, it is quite big on her. But she was an enthusiastic model and tried really hard to mimic the poses she has seen in pictures.

She just couldn't keep her arms steady. I gave her an "A" for effort! Plus she had so much fun and was giggling the whole time. Isn't it all about having fun when you are a kid?

I adore that colour for colfax, so yummy! I need to track down one more skein and get some test knits done before I can start but I can't wait! It's a must have for me for Fall.
