In the studio - delicate shawl

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

This is what I've done since the original entry June 9

I'm still really loving the stripes. The rows are getting to be over a hundred stitches each, so it takes more and more time to do each row. But the rewards are great. This is a very delicate and lovely shawl that will be very light and warm at the same time. It is very light greens, with two different weights of yarn. I'm loving the way that the merino lace weight yarn colors change, and am always amazed at the way they move the eye across the surface of the fabric.

So I'll soon be putting up the finished photo and getting it into the Etsy shop.

- my new favorite yarn. This is straight from the shop: Saratoga Needle Arts in Saratoga Springs. I rode the bus up again today and have been strolling. I'm still absorbing the dhosa from the Indian restaurant and enjoying a lovely mild summer day.

With these two rosey pink colors and the colors I already have I'm looking forward to something very special
