I'd never knitted a shawl before, and wanted to make something special with a skein of Dark Harbour yarn in the colourway 'Old Salt' Isn't that an evocative name? It features speckles of black sprinkled like salt on a grey base.
So above you can see my finished Spindrift shawl. I really enjoyed knitting it even though I made a few mistakes. The most obvious of these involves the continuous eyelet rows I worked at the bottom of the shawl, rather than the style given in the pattern. It was just the way I interpreted the instructions during a glass of wine and a couple of episodes of the BBC's War and Peace. Typical of my amateur knitting, but I like the finished shawl and I'm sure I'll wear it this spring.
I made a couple of other changes, as described here on Ravelry.
