Boneyard Shawl

There are times when you find the absolutely perfect pairing of handspun and pattern. This is one of those times.

This is a lovely handspun project I created from batts I made on my drum carder. There is a lot of silk in there as well as wool and cashmere. This has always been a lovely soft yarn. I adore the tweedy nature of it and have been trying to figure out what to create with it for a long time.

During a clean up of my craft room I decided to “declutter” my printed out paper patterns. By declutter I mean look through because I got rid of VERY little. However, among that group was a paper printed boneyard shawl pattern. I immediately thought of this yarn and cast on.

It didn’t take long for that tweedy goodness to become a fully fledged boneyard shawl which I absolutely did wear to work today even though it’s way too warm to be wearing that much shawl. I absolutely adore this finished project!
