DONE. And I mean it this time.

I finished the Find Your Fade shawl last night, for real this time. Like I’m really happy with how it turned out! I did the last section with Color D and even though these aren’t my favorite colors, I think it’s quite attractive.

Knitting this shawl is kind of like childbirth, for me at least. While you’re doing it, you’re like OMG will this never end this isn’t fun argh! But then it’s done and it’s really cool and you’re proud of what you made, and you want to do it again.

So yeah, I’m pretty sure a purple version is in my future. Someday. Just not yet. I need a few one-skein projects to cleanse my palate first!

Pattern: Find Your Fade  by Andrea Mowry.

Yarn: Butter Sock by Bumblebee Acres Farm in a GOT Lannister-themed fade set. (They have some AMAZING Harry Potter yarns now that I’m drooling over!)

  1. Yup, you definitely made the right choice. It turned out stunning! As to the colors, I don’t think I would have picked them either, which is really silly since autumn colors are some of the ones that look the best on me. But I love purples and blues and greens too much to usually choose reds and oranges when I have the option. 😉
