Spring arrives this week and with it’s arrival my thoughts turn to shawls. They are the perfect spring accessory, just right for cool evenings when you need a little something-something on your shoulders but you don’t need a jacket.
In the photo above are 4 skeins of yarn that I have set out to go with the shawls I have queued up for this spring. On the left is Woolen Rabbit Lucent in the color Pussywillow for Beach Glass. Next to that is Ball and Skein Sophia in the color Nyx for And So Are You. The silvery skein that’s second from the right is Blue Moon Fiber Arts 100% Silk Laceweight in the color Winter Solstice for the Aeolian Shawl. And finally, on the far right is Ball and Skein Glissade in the color Gourd for Sugared Violets.
Since taking that photo I have started Beach Glass. Casting on 388 stitches takes a looooong time but I’m moving through the charts now and loving the feel of this yarn and the way it looks in this pattern. It feels so good to be knitting a shawl again!
What are you knitting this spring?
