Rainbow Katriel

I was privileged to test knit Robin Ulrich's newest pattern, The Katriel Shawl.  Find details of the pattern here on Robin's Blog.
My finished shawl looks like this:
I think it turned out beautifully.
Here are a few other photos.

Yarmando is modeling the Katriel while we were at Wool Gathering today.

I used 64 grams of Schoppel Wolle Zauberball no: 1153 1564 bedr lot: 319684 (less than one ball).
I used 74 grams of Baby Ull superwash farge 810 lot 25528 (1 full ball and most of the second).
My gauge was looser than desired pattern stitch gauge. My gauge was 20 sts X 10 cm on size 6 circular needles (before blocking). 5 sts/in. I am pleased with the resulting fabric

This was a very pleasant knit and only took about 24-32 hours to knit. I really liked the long color repeat of the Zauberball with the solid navy. I think the effect is quite beautiful.

Now, if I knew who should receive the shawl or perhaps I'll just wear it myself.
