A shawl for an Alpha

Alpha wolf that is!!!!
I was honoured to be asked to knit Chaske Spencer a scarf as a token of the NZ Be the Shift movement.

Chaske (who plays Sam Uley in the Twilight Saga) is the founder and US "ambassador" of the cause and is in New Zealand this weekend at the Wellington Armageddon expo. A bunch of my lovely Twilight girls are heading down and will be meeting him on Saturday and will be giving his this shawl that i made for him!
(Hubby is modeling it too to show that it is unisex ;) )

The pattern in "Herbivore" By Stephen West, and was knit in gorgeous hand dyed yarn in the colours of the Twilight woods, so was perfect yarn to choose!

"Be the Shift" was set up to shine the light on the struggle of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe.
