Ambah does it again

Free Your Fade is growing. My goal is to finish it over the weekend. Three days off in a row - I should make it. Maybe a bit of House of Cards. We haven't started the new season yet.
The transition rows are done and now I'm into the last colour. I really want to sit and knit this afternoon but Cathy and I are moving and counting yarn. The list of sale yarns is growing. Take a look at what is going to be available in the store and online.
Named for the Australian Aboriginal word for song, Marinna lets you create your own melody with your favourite colour pairing. Compose a slow, relaxed piece with neutrals, add a pop of energy with a bright speckle, or choose two high contrast yarns for a dramatic anthem. The sample is knit in two beautiful shades reminiscent of summer roses, echoing the delicate flower lace which flows into the stripe section. The shawl is then finished with a lovely leafy border. Knit from the top down with increases forming a shallow triangle shape, Marinna makes an elegant and versatile accessory. 
The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the lace.
Another stunning shawl from Ambah O'Brien.

Pattern: Marinna (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: 2 skeins of fingering weight
That darn Ambah keeps making beautiful patterns. I can't keep up with her.

Ambah is extremely approachable and helpful if you run into difficulties, as I did with one of her patterns.
