So I cast on a new skein of sock yarn last weekend. It’s beautiful sock yarn, pink and orange and green with a thread of sparkly stellina throughout. In fact, it’s so beautiful that I thought it could not become socks. As much as I love socks, this yarn was too pretty, too sparkly, to go on my feet.
I browsed through shawl patterns on Ravelry for ages and nothing looked right, so I went to Instagram and asked for suggestions, and got a good one right away: the Kindness KAL Shawl! It had lace, which I wanted, and it’s free, which is always good. I haven’t had as much good knitting time in the evenings as I’d like, but I’ve gotten most of the way through the stockinette/eyelet section.
Such pretty colors! (Yarn is Supernatural Yarns Gryffin Sock in color Listen, Dammit!) And it’s so lightweight and airy, especially knit with the size 6 needles. I have no idea what I’ll wear it with…maybe I need to buy a shirt just for this shawl. That’s not weird, right?
Definitely not weird. Gorgeous colours ❤
Buying a shirt to match a knitting project is totally normal.
Whew, glad it’s not just me!
That is such a beautiful skein!
It will make a beautiful shawl!
Thank you, I think so too!
Totally normal. have bought shoes just for handknit socks before. And those are lovely colors!
Haha, I’ve been tempted to find those clear sneakers to show off my socks!
LOL, my shoes-for-handknit-socks aren’t clear, but that would be a lot of fun!
That shawl is going to be so bright and cheery next winter
