A different kind of fade

Rita was in yesterday wearing Dotted Rays - Speckled Fade (pattern purchased on Ravelry) from Stephen West. The pattern is in my library and now I really need to make it. Rita said it was a lot of fun and she would definitely make it again.
I tried to take it but she wouldn't let me. It is so beautiful.
This is the large size and it hasn't been blocked yet - Rita just cast it off this week. It will be huge after blocking. The perfect cuddle up in shawl when the air conditioning is on too high. Or for that cold winter night.
The yarn is tosh sock
astrid grey
great grey owl
el greco
The border is onyx and grasshopper.

If we run out of these colours, they are in the tosh shipment coming the end of July/beginning of August.

I'll definitely be playing with combinations on Tuesday.

Have your read our newsletter that went out this week? There will be some yarns on sale in July - we need to make room in the store for all the great yarn that I've purchased in the last few months.

The wedding yesterday afternoon was a lot of fun. Spending time with family and friends is always a great way to spend an evening. Today we are off to Aunt Rene's and Uncle Bob's 50th wedding anniversary. A whole different set of family and friends. Lots more laughs and fun family time.

What a great shawl! I love them big enough to wrap around and fold over more than once. That one looks so comfortable!
