In the studio

Shawl, Merino wool tape, with silk and rayon blend. Garter stitch. 10.5 "flexible" needles.

This is one in a series of riffs on a two-yarn pattern. I adore the light spring colors. The two-yarn patterns are using yarns of different weights to create stripe textures. Yum!

Let me just say that I hate the flexible needles. These are bamboo with a nylon end, making them capable of holding very large pieces of fabric. The nylon won't straighten out, which makes them a horrible pain as they become tangled in the fabric. Ick!!!
