Photo by Renee, Saturday at Marin Fiber Arts; go to for her blog.  This is what the Constance shawl looks like if you do it in a single-color yarn. It took me about 17-18 hours to knit it in this fingering-weight baby alpaca.

One note on the book: I did the smaller version of the Water Turtles shawl several times exactly as it is written in the book, a generously-sized example being Sandi’s shawl shown here: While knitting the one that was photographed for the book, however, I skipped rows 30 and 32 in the yoke, making a slightly shorter yoke. Either way works fine.Constance shawl in white baby alpaca fingering weight

Oh how I love hearing that flexibility. “Either way works fine.” It causes a person like me to feel as though it will all work out great. No worries.

and did you know that you knit hearts in your shawls?? It’s like getting an Alison hug when I get to that part — back to my “Michelle” shawl now.

Thanks for linking to the blog — that shawl is truly stunning…

Wow, what a story about the barbeque – I would never go near one again!

Ahhh, another lovely picture of you 😉 It’s a classic Alison, with you sitting peacefully in this beautiful shawl. I appreciate the people who take the photos, they seem to capture your essence quite nicely!
Thanks photographers!!
