Wish this was mine

I love it when customers send me pictures to share. It makes my blog post for the day much easier.

Pattern: Quadratische Decke Shawl (purchased on Ravelry)

This shawl is absolutely beautiful. Lorraine knit it for a Christmas gift. Can you believe giving this away? If she wasn't going to keep it she should have brought it to me.



Here is a close up so you can see the many, many beads that are knit into the shawl.

Lorraine used 3 skeins of Mrs. Crosby Train Case (a fingering weight yarn) in African Grey.
55% Superwash Merino Wool
15% Nylon
30% Outlast® viscose
Approx. 425 yds / 100g
Outlast® technology is proactive, using phase change materials (PCM) to absorb excess heat from your skin when you are warm, and releasing that heat back to you when you need it most.
Shawls knit in Train Case drape beautifully. The yarn is also amazing for socks. The nylon is there for strength and the Outlast will make sure your feet don't get too hot.

Thanks for sharing Lorraine. It is beautiful.
