This was a quick little shawl to make! That might be because so much of it is stockinette stitch which goes quickly for me, but it might also be because I loved the project so much. For someone who says they don’t like orange, I loved this yarn! There’s something about pink and orange together that just makes me happy, and the green balances it out and makes it all springy, reminding me of flowers. Then there’s the thread of sparkly stellina and I do love a good sparkle.
I also liked the two kinds of lace. It made it fun to knit and interesting to look at too.
I did have a couple of hiccups with this project. First, I ran out of yarn before I could do the three rows of garter stitch at the end and I should have done an edge with another yarn because even after blocking, it wants to curl. I suppose I could pick up and knit an edge if it bothers me. Second, when I blocked it, I discovered a dropped stitch in the stockinette section. Once I recovered from the initial panic, I let it dry and then picked up stitches until I got to the first lace section. I had a bit of yarn leftover so I threaded some through the stitch and wove in the ends, hiding and securing that loose stitch. Given that shawls typically get light wear and don’t get washed often, it should be fine. Today is slightly cool and the girl has a flute recital, so I might just have to debut it today!
Pattern is Kindness KAL Shawl (and I just realized I didn’t block the scallops into my shawl! Dang it!)
Yarn is Supernatural Yarns Gryffin Sock in the color Listen, Dammit! Love their yarns.
I hesitate with lace and variegated yarns but this colorway has not obscured that lovely lace patterning at all! It’s perfect! Definitely going in my queue!
I’m so glad you think so! But I do kind of want to make another one in a solid yarn. 🙂
It’s a gorgeous colour combination- makes one happy just looking at it!
Hey, thank you! 🙂
Wow! This is very cheerful and I think it will go with lots of different clothes. Like others, I also love how the lace pattern shows up even though the yarn is variegated. So cool.
Thank you! Yes, it is cheerful! 🙂
That’s really pretty! I love how it turned out. And I also love that shawls are so fixable like that. Great job!
So pretty! And dslicate. Well done 🙂

I’m so glad that you got that drop stitch fixed. I probably would have panicked!
I kind of did, at first! It’s a good thing it was pinned down or I would have probably fumbled it and made it worse.
Beautiful! Reminds me of sherbet. Mmm.
