Varjo (Shadow)

Here is another pattern in my list of airplane knitting. Veera Valimaki is the designer. You might recognize her name, Veera designed Color Affection-that could be another choice. I have been looking at this pattern for some time but it was part of a KAL and not available for purchase. It's available now and I bought it.
Shadow varjo is a modern garter stitch shawl with stripes 
and short rows. The shawl is worked sideways.
My yarn choice for this is merino light
thicket (a very dark purple) and grove - one skein of each

The colours could change this week when we receive more merino light.
Here are a few combinations that I saw on Ravelry
cove and wellwater
cove and badlands
ruby slippers and grasshopper
badlands and bloomsbury

Shadow is knit on 4mm needles. 

Football is on the TV now and I finished section 4. I'm 20 rows into section 5. There are another 20 rows of this colour and then 50 or so rows of the next colour.
The football game isn't close. If things don't change soon I'm going to put my friend Patrick on the TV until the next game starts.
