Behemoth

Liberated from the needles, meet the winged, primordial beast...



The innocent knitter had no idea she was spawning such a creature. Good thing she ran out of yarn or she would have kept going!



It's a bit hard to get a sense for how thick and squishy and woolly and vast it is, so above is my attempt at a "human included for scale" shot...

Pattern: Feather And Fan Comfort Shawl
Materials: 542 yds of my 2-ply, handspun aran/chunky weight wool yarn
Needles: Needlemaster 10.5 - the first time a cord has broken on me...
Dimensions: 70.5 x 33.5

Long live the handspun monster!
