The spring theme has spilled over into my knitting. This lovely little shawl was off the needles, waiting patiently to be blocked.
This is the most recent Yarn Knot installment. I finished it several days ago and then promptly set it aside until I could find time to block it.
Yesterday I spotted it on top of the pile and decided to make time to block it.
I've been craving a splash of color, and this shawl definitely fits the bill.
This design uses elongated garter stitch throughout the body followed by a drop-stitch border. This was my on-the-go project for a while . . . simple yet entertaining. The yarn is Bertha, a blend with a bit of cashmere. This shawl is perfect for our still-chilly spring days.
This week I've been looking outside for colorful signs of spring, but I've heard the plants are behind schedule in blooming. I found this week's color inspiration on a recent trip to the store.
A taste of spring, packaged and ready to go.
