Just a quick post to show you finished project number two for the year. This shawl was made from a combination Cascade Eco Duo and Alpaca yarn I had in my stash. I actually tried to make this pattern on purpose, changing the yarn type every ten pegs on my loom. I think it has made an interesting plaid that is subtle but adds some depth to the shawl.
THis shawl is very soft, can't you just picture it with jeans and a white t-shirt? Of course that is the way I imagine every shawl, as you can see I am not a fancy girl. In my dream life I am standing on a wide front porch of a very old home calling my kids into dinner, with a gorgeous shawl wrapped around my shoulders. Ah.... a girl can dream.
I have wrapped up three shawls and the red scarf all from my loom, ready to ship to my sister for her etsy store. I have two more shawls in my head if not on my loom, then I will switch to a few scarves.
When I made my green shawl I took lots of pictures of how it was made. Is anyone interested in a post about weaving?
