Awhile back I decided to do another So I Gathered shawlette out of handspun made from rolags from The Dyeing Arts. I picked the rolags up at a local show, and it didn’t take me long to get started on them, they were so beautiful.
I ended up with over 400 yards of 2 ply yarn.
I love yellow, if I had to pick a favorite color, yellow is probably it. So between the yellow color and the silk content, I was eager to knit with it.
Basically I just knit until I ran out of yarn, there’s a ruffle on the edge that technically shouldn’t be there, but I added it because I couldn’t manage to do another decrease/ruched section with the yarn I had left, and I really wanted to use up as much as possible. Which I did!
I can’t wait to wear this one, even though that will mean cooler weather.
In other news, Miss Bug seems to be adjusting to her new school quite well, but as with any transition, is a bit needy in the evenings. First it was bathroom cleaning with mom, and last evening it was lego playing while I spun and listened to the tales she spun about her legos. 🙂
Around here, legos are always the comfort toy.
One thought on “A Finished Shawlette”
I’m so glad Miss Bug is adjusting quite well. I hope she continues to get on well. I love the yarn you have spun, such gorgeous colours. Thanks for the link you gave me for the knitted shawlette, I have just started one myself 🙂 x
