Wild Thang


Triangle shawl, mixed fibers; garter stitch; size US 10 wood cable needle, 32 in.

This worked up rather quickly with bulky yarns and carrying two strands. I finished it December 14.  I was inspired by the popcorn yarn that I got in San Diego  three years ago.  I just had to do something crazy with it.  I added two laceweight teal wools knitted together, an old heavy sari silk yarn, a beautiful purple all silk worsted, a couple of complex wild things with metallic strands and a custom dyed strange fleecey yarn by Prism.

It's warm and heavy, works well as a BIG babushka scarf.
