Going Green

My In The Light is really going green! I have progressed through the solid/tonal green section and I’ve added the third and last color.

I have been really pleased with how well these colors are marling together. It will end up a very light to dark fade. And this version is the plain version with no fringe. So this will be how the finished object will look.

I need to work a couple more rows of the garter and then I can start the lace section that finishes the shawl. If you spy carefully you will see the Corner of Craft bunny stitch marker. I’ve made a pretty good push on this since last I showed you guys.

I’m hoping to keep my focus and get this finished up soon. Not that I need a DK weight shawl in Kansas in May but I love the satisfaction of finishing a project! Happy Knitting!!

Cast On: Be Simple Shawl

I finished my Jay Jay shawl last week and my fingers were still itching for some shawl knitting. In my project bin of prepped projects I had the yarn caked for the Be Simple Variations by Carolyn Glauz-Todrank. So I started my needles clicking and I have this…

This is some 3+ year old stash of Cloudlover Yarn and Fiber sock yarn. It’s superwash Merino and nylon blend in their Copacabana colorway. It’s a highly variegated teal, orange, brown and purple. I have to be honest…..I’m not loving the yarn and pattern combo. I love the intuitiveness of the pattern. I just hate the colors as a shawl to wear around my face. They just aren’t me. I am thinking this yarn would be better served as socks that go inside shoes….

I have put this yarn into hibernation/time out to think about what I want to do. Any thoughts from the viewers?
