The Southern Shawl - GIVEAWAY {Knitting}

Wednesday, 24 June 2015

This is Libby's latest design - the Southern Shawl. I did not post anything about it (it was all very secretive), except for my choice of yarn I think. It is actually quite hard not to post anything about a current WIP, I did not realise how much instagram is part of my craft process. 

The shawl is worked as an asymmetrical triangle and the body is alternating rows of stockinette and reverse stockinette so it looks almost identical on both sides. I absolutely love the texture of it - how you can achieve a stripey look without changing yarn. The pastel colour works great with this sort of pattern.

The yarn is a lonely skein from my stash that I have had for ages (whoohoo to get rid of lonely skeins!) - it works beautifully with this pattern. I am not really sure what project I had in mind when I first bought the skein, but it is definitely what it was meant to be. And now my Grandma will be able to enjoy it, as I knitted it for her!

Yarn: one skein of Alpaca Silk Cashmere Sock Yarn in dusky rose 
hand dyed by WharfedaleWoolworks (from my stash)
Needles: 3.75mm
