So I am blocking my sunny coloured shawl today - and it certainly brightens up the room.
I have named it my 'Sunshine On A Cloudy Day' shawl and I cannot wait to wear it on dreary winter days.
The pattern is a free one, the Spindrift Shawl by Helen Stewart. Well, you can either purchase the pattern or receive it for free if you sign up to Helen's free shawl email workshops series, which I found really helpful anyway.
The shawl is a quick and easy knit, but just enough of interest to keep you going. I really love the border pattern and the way it is quite narrow, makes it a perfect scarf-type shawl.
The yarn I have used is my own dyeing. You can find it on Ravelry here. I am planning to set up a shop selling it, so have added some of my bases to Ravelry as well. It is very exciting! I sold some yarn at our local Makers Market and would love to keep doing it. I cannot knit myself all that I want to try dyeing!
I love the tonal nature of this yellow. I never really dye total solids - they always have a tonal, semi-solid nature to them, which I prefer.
And I am still knitting away at my Azel pullover, only because I have put it aside for a few days. All I need to finish is picking up and knitting the neck. Such an easy, quick knit. Love it! I cannot wait to try some more of Velvet Acorn's patterns! (If you buy them on Etsy, she has 3,7 or 10 pattern bundle deals! So of course I have 10 patterns now!)
What are you knitting today?
Have a lovely Sunday!
