@blondechicken on Twitter alerted me to the existance of a Lord of the Rings Themed shawl based on the Evenstar pattern by Sunflower Designs. My geek antennae went bizoink! It's gorgeous and would require me to sequester myself in a convent to knit this in silence as god's work in order to knit it as exquisitely as the designer has.
Here's more info about the pattern here. It's available for download on Ravelry for $8.00.
The best part? This is the first pattern in a collection of 24 to be inspired by LOTR.
