Another shawl off the needles and completed! This design is by Ruth Greenwald and if you haven't joined our Light & Dark Lace Club, you're welcome to venture over to Ravelry and join our group. Ruth and I alternate between the bi-monthly shipments - she does lighter colourways and I do darker colourways which is kind of fun as it allows a nice variation from shipment to shipment. This colourway was actually one I had to fix from the original dyeing for the club in April so it's a bit different from the rest of the colourways used - however, I still really love it! Ruth's design called for a US5 needle but I decided to use a US6 just to make it a little bigger and the size is fantastic now that it's finished. I can wrap it around my shoulders easily and use a shawl pin to close it at the front.
Raveled: Diadem Shawl
While I'm not knitting I'm busy prepping for TNNA which is quickly approaching! I'm excited to be going just to be able to see what the market is like - unlike the shows in Ontario, the number of booths on the show floor could easily be at least 3x more than our biggest fibre show. I will be busy at my booth of course but I'm hoping to walk around to see what everyone has to offer.
Watch for a pre-TNNA sale - I'll be sending out a newsletter with details on Tuesday. If you haven't signed up for our newsletter yet, please do so here.
