On the Needles

Wednesday at Stitch Night several of us cast on for the Spring Shawl Knitalong.  Some chose Ishbel by Ysolda Teague, other opted for Dancette by Irish Girlie Knits.

I was in the mood for the bold stripes and zig-zags in Dancette.  It took me a few tries, but I finally settled on a color combination that I love.

  • Top: Siren Two Sock by Pigeonroof Studios in Orchid Thief.
  • Bottom: Sweet Georgia Cashluxe Fine in Riptide

It’s not the most bright and spring-like shawl, but I am loving the way the lavender, brown, cream and deep teal are playing together.  And both yarns are merino, cashmere, nylon blends which is such a treat to work with.  I’m convinced yarn with cashmere knits faster…

What’s on your needles this weekend?
