True Colors Shawl and a Giveaway
I LOVED knitting this shawl, truly -- one of the best knits ever to have on the needles. The color changes were fun and I was eager to sit and knit each night. While knitting this shawl, I day dreamed over other ones I could knit.
In my imagination, a lace weight version was drifting in and out of my ideas. I have lots of bits and pieces of lace weight wool from previous projects and I'm sure the colors would compliment each other since I gravitate towards the same colors.
This is the second Melanie Berg pattern I've knit (the first one is here). Her instructions are clear and concise as well as interesting to knit.
Ravelry notes are here.

Your new shawl is just awesome!!! I can just imagine it paired with jeans and a gray or green top. (Yes, I am dreaming of fall on these 95+ days.) I am not a knitter so do not consider me for the giveaway. Love seeing all the projects you share with your readers.ReplyDelete
oh Karen, it's beautiful! I'm still standing by my offer to KAL with Kidsilk Haze; I think it would be a perfect laceweight match for the pattern :-) and how wonderful to host that giveaway! (but please don't include me ... I already own the pattern!)ReplyDelete
