In the studio

Shawl, turkish lace stitch, mohair, wool, rayon and metallic fibers, size 13 cable needle, 24 in

I began a neon shawl with the eye-popping green (March 2, 2007 entry), but somehow it just wasn't working, so I took all that apart and started this blended piece, which I'm finding to be quite lovely. With each mohair strand I'm using a sock yarn and I'm blending the colors differently each time, using about three yellows and two or three greens and two blues. Then I stick the rayon-metallic yarn in randomly for a bold stripe. I'm hoping the open lacework will keep the mohair from being too warm.
