Pattern: Westknits Mystery Shawl Knitalong 2011: Earth & Sky
Yarn: A: Grey, Koigu KPM, 2 skeins, 175 yards each. B: Chartreuse, Koigu KPM, 1 skein, 175 yards. C: Tomato, Madelinetosh Sock, 350 yards.
Needles: Size 4 Addi lace clicks
Mods: None! Since this was done during the knitalong I made no changes. I did choose to knit the Option 2 border instead of a plain garter-stitch edging.
Notes: I had less than 5 grams of chartreuse left, and a small amount of grey and tomato.
I usually tend towards more subtle jewel tone colors, but I couldn't resist putting these three together. The grey and chartreuse Koigu came out of stash (the grey was purchased in Maryland, the chartreuse came from Hill Country Weavers in Austin, when I visited my best girl Jenny a few years ago) and the tomato was purchased especially for the project. I was considering only two other possibilities, a natural white, and a turquoise blue. I am glad I went with the red!
