Thank you. It is a bit deeper in person. The picture was taken in early morning natural light.

Thats beautiful! Can't wait till I finish Skywalker and start on Clarus. I'm also using String Theory for Clarus but in Didgeridoo. Seeing yours gives me an idea what mine might look like. Did you do the small or large version of Clarus?

I did the small shawl. Keep in mind, that colors vary depending upon your monitor, etc. I took this picture in early morning light. It is much darker, closer to a deep wine with a multitude of jewel-tone colors throughout. Clarus was a snap compared to Skywalker ....in my opinion. Have fun with yours. :)

Because you used a DK weight, besides switching needle size anything else you had to do differently? I'm thinking of using a DK weight sock yarn from Cherry Tree Hills and was just curious.

I replied to you by making another comment. Oops. See my comment above.

Nope. I was on gauge with the size 6 needle but Laura suggested I go to a size 7 to open it up a bit. The DK weight I used seemed a bit thinner than some other DK weights I have seen. I didn't worry about running out of yarn as I was doing the small size. So, just make sure you have enough yarn for the size you'll be knitting. Good luck and post a picture when you finish so we can all see it.

Ok thank you! Your shawl is so gorgeous! If mine comes out anything close to yours I will be happy.

Where is the pattern for this shawl? Thanks.

The pattern is available with Laura Nelkin's class Mastering Lace Shawls. You can also purchase it on Ravelry or by visiting Laura's website. Don't have the exact website address, just google Laura Nelkin and I'm sure you'll find it. Let me know if you have trouble and I'll get you the exact address.
