Another 2011 FO. This is TGV (High Speed Knitting) by Susan Ashcroft. A nifty crescent shaped shawlette. The stretchy edge + garter ridge combo makes for a squishy hug if worn scarf-like around your neck. I also liked that it's a modular pattern, allowing you to use whatever yarn weight and yardage you have on hand. My Ravelry project page is here. It was the perfect thing during down time, which I grudgingly had aplenty in November.
I knit this during the height of my never-ending cold. I was sort of a mess--when I look at the picture below I immediately think, wow, the meds sure made me loopy. I truly hate taking medicine and try to avoid it. Besides, the Merino/Cashmere/Silk yarn by Sublime helped the most, I think, as did working it up in soothing stripes.
We crafty-types never underestimate the power of luxury fibers, now do we?
