Simmer Dim

Simmer Dim flew off the needles this weekend.  I just got comfortable with this project, and then it was over.  

I'm on a tight schedule.  Simmer Dim is headed to Sock Summit, so I didn't waste any time in blocking it.

This design starts with a center garter stitch triangle.

Stitches are then picked up along two sides of the triangle.  The next section uses increases and two different size needles to create a light, airy pattern.  

The outside edge is finished with a simple lace pattern and a picot bind off.

The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Paula, colorway Peacock.  Simmer Dim is a versatile little shawl that would also make a nice gift.

In other news I'm sponsoring a giveaway over at Juniper Moon Farm. Hop over and take a look.  Don't delay.  Today is the last day to enter.

Boy oh boy, I hope you bring the avocado BFL sock yarn to Sock Summit. It's gorgeous!

Yes, the avocado BFL will be traveling to Sock Summit. You'll find it in booth 817.
