Avalanche Shawl

The Kusha Kusha scarf was progressing so quickly (finished, needs blocking) that I started another project as well.  I shopped my stash for some yarn that I bought almost two years ago to make Stephen West's Earth & Sky shawl.  I envisioned it as a Colorado Avalanche shawl when I chose the colors.

The yarn is Rowan Fine Tweed.  I'm hoping that there will be enough drape, but I'm okay with the project is there isn't.  I like this yarn and it's deep rich colors. 

In progress - two more striped sections have been completed
  I'm now working on the bottom border

It's a well-written pattern and the color work appeals to my ever-lovin'-intarsia heart!  The project has been going quickly, especially since I've been knitting while rewatching past episodes of Breaking Bad (almost caught up - soon to watch the current one).  After only a few days of knitting I find myself working the border with around 400 stitches on the needles.  I'll definitely have it finished by the time hockey season rolls around.  GO AVs!!
