This is a new shawl and I enjoyed making it from start (about a month ago) to finish. It's another shawl that was made, essentially, from my left over bits and bobs of Noro Silk Garden yarn - one of my all time favorites. I had to supplement my left overs with several balls of a variety of blue and green mixes - not bad for a shawl that I've already fallen in love with. I am, as many of you already know, a "warm" side of the color wheel kind of gal. Blues have never been as enticing for me. That was one of my challenges to myself in making this shawl - working with blues, purples and greens. I have to admit that I'm smitten and perhaps you will see more of these colors finding their way into my work
I had to finish this shawl before I allowed myself begin working on Cheryl Oberle's Fundamentlly Faroese Shawl #1. I'm making it with Malabrigo Arroya yarn in their Arco Iris colorway. Began it last evening after I washed and blocked this one!
My husband asked why I'm making so many shawls? What can I say? I love them - and find that they are the perfect garment for our temperate climate.
