SpringShawlSurprice finished!

 SSS 1

After 12 weeks of intense knitting!

And I love it!!! Thank you LUL, It’s been interesting, frustrating and fun.

LUL (the designer) revealed the theme and name of the shawl a few days after the last clue was published, and it made me love it even more.

SSS 3

Here’s how she describes the shawl:

Circles to represent how almost everything in life is repeating itself again and again, the changing of the seasons, being born –growing up-getting old-dying and a new human born again, sunrise-daytime-sun set and night. It all moves in circles and we are all just part of a bigger event “Life” , let it be human or nature.

Curves to represent the curves of a woman – the main image of the stole being a rather modernistic shape of a pregnant woman. She is standing on the bigger circle that represents the Earth, with the tree of life in the center to remind us that we are all part of the world and we all live important lifes. We may look differently, but we are all the same – man or woman.

The name of the stole is “Mother Earth”. You can think of it as a tribute to life and growth, but it is also a reminder to us all that we are responsible to the earth we live on, to the people living on it and to the nature we all share. This is the reason for me wanting as many countries as possible to join the kal and for making it a charity kal aswell.

It is not easy to capture the entire shawl in one pic, here’s a couple of images from the blocking process.

I did a minimum of blocking, the shawl was big enough already.
