Spiral Shawl test knit complete!


The color in the photo above is the most accurate.

I love the way this shawl wraps around the neck and stays on the shoulders with no effort at all.

The increase lines in the body line up with the edging. 

I've been spinning. This is a full bobbin of the wool/silk blend I have been loving spinning. I hope to make this a 3 ply for a vest or sweater.

I also finished up a spinning WIP. These three colorways were spun up and plied together. 

I hope to get a photo of the finished yarn in the next couple of days. I have 160 yards of a worsted weight to knit. It feels nice and soft and fluffy.

The garden is doing well. We didn't get out on the boat again this weekend due to windy weather. That helped with the spinning. Next post will include info on my next project spinway work.

The shawl looks great! I love those little bursts of bright blue in the darker background; that yarn worked out really well.

Your spinning is also looking lovely; it's so much fun to see how different colorways look when they're all plied together.
