Settler Shawl | A finish and a GIVEAWAY {Knitting}

Wednesday, 27 August 2014

Here it is.. My kidney bean Settler shawl. If you are following me on IG, you know that it was blocked twice (forgot one repeat, oops), and that I kept on cursing the weather as I could not take any picture outside. So I came back home yesterday, and although it was raining in London, it was sunny once I was home. That was it, time to take pictures of the shawl. 


It is really difficult to actually capture the colour - it is even more gorgeous in real life. I have one more skein left and I cannot wait to knit a beanie hat, and maybe mittens (let's face it summer is over here in Britain - so may as well embrace the colder months). 



Libby released her pattern yesterday - congrats to her! This is really a beautiful modern shawl, and that can be worn many ways. I am much more of a scarf person, so this is a great addition to my wardrobe. When she asked me to test a shawl, I was worried about the shape of it, but I should not have been worried! 



Pattern: Settler Shawl by Truly Myrtle Designs
Yarn: Artesano Definition Sock yarn in kidney bean (one skein) 
Needles: 4mm
Modifications: None but it may be worth noting that my gauge was totally off, and it still the required length (in case you gauge for shawl...)

  4. The color you chose to knit this is really beautiful. I'm mentally, moving on to fall too. I just knit a pair of knee-high socks and find myself wishing the temperature would drop slightly, so I can wear them. :-D

    I followed you back here after you left a comment on my blob (thank you!) and found that we must have 'washed up' in Britain around the same time. I'm German, but like you I came here in the late 1990s, initially to study and then, well, here I still am! ;)
