The Nefertem Shawl is a pattern designed by Kirsten Kapur for the Loopy Ewe Spring 2011 Sock Club. It came as a kit and included a beautiful skein of Madelinetosh Sock yarn in the colorway called Midnight Rendezvous. The color is a deep purple-blue with hints of black. It's very pretty in person. This was my first time knitting with Madelinetosh yarn and it did not disappoint.

The shawl is worked from the center top edge and has a lotus motif lace border. It was quick and easy. The crochet edging was a challenge for me, but I conquered it in the end. There is some errata for the crochet edge that can be found here. Unfortunately, I didn't find it until I was done.


Pattern: Nefertum

Designed by: Kirsten Kapur

Yarn: Madelinetosh Sock, 1 skein Midnight Rendezvous, 395 yards

Needle: US 8 circular

Knit while waiting for my power to come back on during Hurricane Irene. It took 3 days to knit the shawl and 6 days for the power to be restored. Ugh.

Very, very pretty. Madelinetosh is definitely one of my favorite yarns. Though I just finished a Vitamin D in Quince and Co. tern, and while the colors aren't as "splashy" or eye-catching... that is some gorgeous stuff.

Love it! I've never used that yarn but it looks scrumptious. What a great accessory for autumn.
