I have finished my Richland Shawl since my previous post and have cast on for my next project. Before I show you the pictures of Richland, here is the yarn I am using for what’s on my needles at the moment.
I am using the Earl Grey (greyer in person than in this picture) as the Color A, Fern as color B and Midnight Blue as color C. The pattern is one of Dee O’Keefe’s latest releases, Delmare, in which she used my Classic Merino Superwash Sock yarn as the base yarn. It should be a pretty quick project since the lace work is minimal. I am not a big fan of making these garter shawls which are all the rage because I prefer complexity, but the color changes help keep it interesting. :-)
These are the original colors Dee used for her sample. I usually like to select different colors for several reasons, but in this case I had two main reasons. First I discontinued the Berry this year (heh, sorry about that); and second I was itching to use some of my new colors from this year. (Fern and Earl Grey)
Okay, so on to the finished shawl you are waiting to see. I really love it! These DK weight asymmetrical triangles are pretty fun to knit and get a lot of admiration in the booth. :-) The are quick and easy but still interesting enough to not get tedious.
This lovely shawl will be making it’s debut this coming weekend in Yellow Springs, OH at the 24th annual Woolgathering Festival at Young’s Jersey Dairy. Hope to see some of you there!
