Further Proof I've Lost It

This is the Hylym shawl. Named Hylym for "Have You Lost Your Mind". This is my first "original" design (I use the quotes, because the edging came from a knitting stitch pattern book, so it was more of an original assembly than original design). It's knit in size 8 perle cotton on size 0000 needles. No, that's not a typo. That really is 4 zeros.

I think it turned out pretty well. The quarter gives you some idea of the insanity of the scale here. The ruffle is definitely cute - enough so I've contemplated tackling a full sized version for me. Please note, if I see men in white coats, I will not answer the door, I will just send my furry minions out to surround them and demand chickenses in adorable little ferret voices until they expire from the cute.

Now off to finish February's contribution to the 10 in 2010 madness...
