addicted to shawlettes

Loving the latest shawlette that I have made for myself.  It took me about a week to complete (although I did get some good blocks of knitting time in).

I used Dream in Color Everlasting DK (color Shy).  If I hadn't read the label myself, I would have sworn that this was a cotton yarn at first glance.  It is actually a lovely 100% superwash merino wool.  This is about as variegated in color as I will go... a nice tonal variegation.

 I followed a pattern called Sugared Violets by Rose Beck.  A nice, clearly written & enjoyable pattern to follow!  This shawlette is written for two sizes (medium & large), I knitted the medium size, as I like to wear it wrapped as a cowl/scarf.  This pattern would be great in a lighter or heavier weight yarn as well.

Possibly my favorite part of this piece is how the ends spiral down.


Falling Leaves Cowl

The calendar has been flipped over to September & I have added a new fall pattern to the pattern store here & on Ravelry.  
It is called the Falling Leaves Cowl.

 I have already had a few leaves fall in my yard... have you?

A big thank you to Miranda Mulligan Photography for her work on these shots!
