In the studio - light green shawl

Shawl, mohair, silk, merino wool,stockinette stitch,size 3 cable needle, 24in.

When I saw the strange greenish merino wool, I reached for it but didn't know why. I had been looking at yarn for quite awhile and the colors felt sort of weird and I knew they would stretch me out of my usual color choices.

Then I realized how beautifully it would pair with the whispy light green mohair and silk yarn I've been mooning over for a few months. This is yet another riff on the stripes with two weights I've been trying all this year.

Me likes!
