FO: Striped Feather & Fan Shawl

I can only say really wonderful things about this Striped Feather & Fan Shawl. - The Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn was as always, a joy to work with.
- The constant color changes kept the project interesting and fun.
- The pattern was so simple with an easy four row repeat. As much as I love making charts and marking off each row, it was kind of nice to just knit - a little like free styling!
- Imagine knitting a fingering weight on #9 or #10 needles. I continue to be amazed of the color depth and lusciousness of this piece.
- And it was quick. The shawl was knit in a couple of weeks with much ease.
This striped F&F project could work for any F&F pattern, simply knit 2 rows of one multi-color run and two rows of an accompanying multi-color way. I have seen this completed with sock yarn in two different brilliant jewel tones and it was beautiful!
Don't be surprised if you see another F&F on my totally bright jewel tones of course!

It looks gorgeous. I love the different colors in it, looks quite 'fallish' too :)
