Remember waaaay back in 2011 when I started this project at the Rose Island Lighthouse? First glimpse here. Second glimpse here (at the Saugerties Lighthouse). As you can see, it started out as a scarf.
Somewhere along the way, I ended up not liking how this project was turning out. The bumpy yarn wasn’t showing off the scarf pattern in its Swiss Cheese-y awesome-ness. So, I decided last week that I would turn the scarf into this shawl.
I think it fits the lighthouse keeper theme better, don’t you? Imagine bundling yourself up in this and walking the catwalk around the lantern room.

(This pattern was so fun and easy that I’m knitting another shawl. Here is a photo of it from where I sit and knit.)
