FO: Just Ducky Chadwick

First off, heartfelt thanks to everyone who weighed in here or on Facebook to my "to frog or not to frog?" question. As you can see in the above photo, I decided to keep my "design modification" and finish without shame.

Pattern: Chadwick by Stephen West
Yarn: Tanis Fiber Arts, Blue Label Fingering
(Mallard and Chestnut)

I'm a bit sad this project has come to an end — it was that perfect combination of interesting but not too challenging to knit. And the yarn... Gorgeous and so aptly named. I'm a MN-raised girl who's always loved watching mallards on the lake. The interplay of blue and green is spot on — and makes me so happy.

Credit goes to Albuquerque, though, for today's bright January sun and running water to pool my the shawl alongside.


  1. That is STUNNING! Wow.

  2. that looks so cool, I love the colour blocking and the stripes- it turned out beautifully!

  3. beautiful. I have started this pattern many times. went to a size 7 needle, i am using jade sapphire, cashmere. burnish gold and mulberry. I just discovered some of my yarn-overs are twisted and some not. do yo have any idea what I maybe doing wrong? are they suppose to be twisted? any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
