It was worked in a mixture of yarns, mostly Sublime extra fine merino dk - details here. I gave this one away so set about making another as I missed it more than I thought I would.
I used Kate Eastwood's Easy as Pie Shawl pattern and it is just that - easy as pie!
I worked mine in Rowan Summerlite 4 ply - duck egg and navy.
Next up, a knitted one that I found on Ravelry: Pure by Cabinfour.
I love the simplicity. It's worked in Quince & Co. Osprey - petal (aran weight). It came up smaller than I thought it would but it would be easy to make it bigger. I love it, so I decided to use another of Cabinfour's patterns - Rosarium (also on Ravelry):
This one is a little more adventurous and is a one-skein project so will perhaps be better worn as a scarf. Working this in Shalimar Yarns Breathless in antique - 75% SW merino, 15% cashmere, 10% silk and it is soooo soft! I don't normally like wool around my neck because it's too itchy but this will be no problem. Still at WIP stage.
Last month I decided to take part in the #HOBCAL, run by Sandra, Cherry Heart and Sam, Betsy Makes. The pattern they chose for the CAL was Christina Hadderingh's Hotel of Bees Shawl (again on Ravelry). To be honest, I didn't really know how I was going to get on with this, it's quite different for me - lots of detail - but I really enjoyed it and am pleased with the results.
Nice to go out of your comfort zone once in a while. I've also been grabbed by the sock knitting bug, but that's another post.
Hope all is well out there.
