FO: Limelight

Here’s my finished Limelight.  I knit it in a lovely 100% silk gradient from White Birch Fiber Arts that I picked up at DFW Fiber Fest this year.   I’ve never knit a shawl with this construction method – you cast on a bajillion stitches, knit some short rows to create depth, then on to the border.  On the one hand, you have long rows right off the bat – on the other hand, at least in this pattern, all the rows past the short rows have the same number of stitches, so if you’re used to playing yarn chicken at the end of a lace shawl, it’s not quite so bad.

As you can tell from the closeup my bind-off could have been looser (and probably I could have picked a yarn with more give) but I’m pretty happy with this.
