Show Off Saturday - 2/4/2017

Today seems like a good day to show a couple of recently finished projects.


Pattern: Find Your Fade Shawl by Andrea Mowry
Yarn:  Verdant Gryphon Bugga! in Devil's Flower Mantis, Love Bug Jr., Purple Sea Urchin and Peacock Butterfly.
Comments: This pattern has taken the knitting world by storm. One can use a few colors or many colors. I liked how the VG Valentine's Bon Bons from 2012 played together in a gradient-like manner and since I am ever in a cold sheeping state, I thought they'd make a lovely Fade. There are so many beautiful Fades out there, but I have to say that I really liked mine. I think it's exactly as I pictured it.


And although I purposely made mine a little smaller, it's plenty big.


Pattern:  Welted Cowl by Jane Richmond
Yarn:  Belfast Mini-Mills Ltd. Merino/Quiviut in Natural
Comment: I've been looking for the perfect project for this lovely blend of merino and quiviut. When the Grocery Girls announced a KAL called the BFF KAL, I jumped right in. The link may not work for you if you don't have a Ravelry account. Anyway, I loved knitting with this yarn. It's so soft! 

Y'all have a great Super Bowl Sunday!

MK out.

Both the Fade and Cowl are lovely MK. Really nice color choices on that Fade.
