New Samples

Mr. Canada Post stopped in this morning with a box from Lynda. More beautiful samples.

This is Delilah knit in Louisa Harding Noema. The pattern is from her Noema book. My cowl is the long version - 5 balls. There is also a shorter version (2 wraps around the neck instead of 3) that takes 2 balls. The cowl is knit on 5mm needles which gives it a light, airy feeling.

The yarn is 75% cotton, 20% acrylic and 5% nylon.

The other sample in the box is Awelon (pattern purchased on Ravelry). This is the second one that Lynda has knit. This version is knit in Phoenix Print from Trendsetter Yarns. LOVE IT!!!
For the first two pictures my friend wore the shawl one way and then we changed it for the second two pictures. There are many different looks.
Asymmetrical design that is flowing along the lower edge. 
This shawl is perfect for spring and summer and will dress up any outfit. 

The shawl took 10 balls. We don't have enough of the sample colour in the store (it should be here next week) but we have lots of
