Like a Phoenix Rising

Like a Phoenix Rising out of a hot ruin.  You can see his wings in this picture.

This Fire Shawl is in the next issue of Spin Off.  The description says:

 

Pattern: The Susan shawl from Myrna Stahman's Stahman's Shawls and Scarves.
Fiber: 4 ounces of Merino/tussah roving in a hand-dyed Guardians of Fire colorway from Carolina Homespun, scarlet Romney locks, glittery Angelina, and firestar.
Yarn: 125 yards per ounce and 800 yards 2-ply.
Needles: Ebony U.S. size 7 (4.5 mm) needles.

(Links aren't available for previews.  I got this informaiton from my Knitting Daily email subscription.)

Stahman Cover If you don't already have a copy of Myrna Stahman's Shawls and Scarves book, then now would be a good time to invest in a copy.  Is it out of print?  It's selling for between $90 and $190 US Dollars on Amazon.com.  It's selling for $95 - $125 on Barnes and Noble.  It's not available from Powell's Books.  The good news is that it appears to be selling on The Needle Arts Book Shop, Schoolhouse Press, and probably elsewhere, for regular price.
