Shedir #2

2ndShedir2
Shedir is on its way to hopefully give its recipient some cheer and comfort. Calmer still isn't my favorite yarn (I get confused by its odd stretchiness), but I love how soft it is. I have another skein and may just make a hat for myself, with a different pattern though.
Pattern: Shedir from Knitty
Yarn: 1 skein of Rowan Calmer in peacock
Mods: All knit sts are tbl, for more stretch and definition.
