In the midst of all the WIPs, presents, shop samples, and small projects I've been doing this spring and summer, I feel like my Henslowe shawl has been overlooked. Which is too bad, because I love it and I can't wait for shawl-wearing weather to show it off.

This pattern, by Beth Kling, had been in my queue for a long time. I wanted to make it someday, but when it first caught my eye, I only had a few simple knitting projects to my name. Then this year, when I was looking on Ravelry for patterns to use the skein of Ball and Skein Glissade that I bought at the Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival, I realized Henslowe would work perfectly.

And I think it turned out beautifully. The pattern and yarn complement each other well, and both were easy to work with. I really like knitted-on lace edging construction, and the semi-crescent shape of the shawl. I haven't gotten a chance to really wear it yet, but I imagine that this shape will be a little easier to wear as a scarf than a true triangular shawl is.
