Time for a knitting post! This is a purple Pinkerton Shawl, knit with Cascade Heritage in plum. I didn't check gauge, and that might be why this version isn't as big as it ought to be, as I ran out of yarn. It blocked out pretty nicely, though! I do wish I had knit a border along the top and side, though, since no amount of blocking would stop the edge from rolling, but I think in the end it was OK! It was a pretty gorgeous shade of purple, too!

This was a simple placemat project for a friend. I made two of each of these designs, sized around 14"x18". The panels on each are the same size, just arranged differently. With a seam allowance of 1/2", the larger rectangles are 15"x9" and the green strip is 15"x3".
