Next up in the finishing parade, a little Ashton Shawlette knit out of Abstract Fiber Matisse - a tightly twisted 100% BFL fingering weight - that I finished um a while ago.  So long ago, in fact, that I didn't even take notes on when the knitting was done.

The finished fabric is very light and crisp, and the color is fabulous - the yarn didn't pool but instead broke up into uniform runs of color stacked on top of each other.  This is my second time making the Ashton pattern, and the second time was just as fun as the first.  I think in general, though, I'm starting to gravitate back towards bigger, cozier shawls - this one is cute and small, but it doesn't have much heft around the neck.  A good summery shawl nonetheless!
