I took advantage of the end of summer weather we're having here in western Washington. What a glorious day and a perfect time to bring this KAL project to a close. I say that with some sadness. This project is one of my most challenging and memorable to date.
The beach a few blocks from my house was a good place to start. I actually used it as the backdrop for another project: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/aksaxton/eurybia. I then went a few blocks down the street to my favorite hometown park, Causland Park. Here I found the perfect spots to really show off this shawl.
Causland Memorial Park (710 N Avenue) was built in the 1920’s by Louis Lepage and is on the National Register of Historic Places. A portion of the park is dedicated to Anacortes veterans from World War I to the Vietnam War.
So here are pictures of my Spire. I enjoyed the project so very much and always love knitting along with Kelli and Melissa and their blog readers. I wonder what the next KAL might be?
Happy Knitting, everyone. Let's do this again soon!
