The sun is shining (kind of) and I took a better picture of Free Your Fade. Now you can see the pink (or rose) coming through in my second colour.
Cathy came in this morning wearing her Free Your Fade that she knit in Skinny Singles. We picked out colours for another one in Rockshelter Sock. The colours are so pretty. Cathy loves blues and greens so these will be perfect for her.

This cowl is the perfect all-the-time accessory! And the answer for all of those knitters out there who love to knit shawls, but have a hard time styling them. A fun and engaging knit with shifting colors, that looks like an asymmetrical triangle shawl, and it only takes a fiddle-free second to throw it on as the finish to every outfit!

You need 3 skein of Dyed in the Wool to make The Shift (pattern purchased on Ravelry).
Dyed In The Wool represents the fulfillment of our desire, here at Spincycle headquarters, to merge the beauty and texture of a handspun yarn with a more efficiently produced millspun yarn. We found the perfect partners at a mill on Camano Island: a mother-daughter team who are meticulous and skilled and lovely! 
Through our collaboration, we are able to produce a yarn that maintains the color artistry of our original handspun product. Because we dye the fiber before it's spun, colors meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations; the overall effect is of a balanced, seamless whole. 
The color transitions are slow and dramatic, and each skein is unique. When planning larger projects requiring more than one skein, allow for nuance. 

Today's UPS tracking for the box from Spincycle. Now it's written in stone - we will see the yarn on Tuesday. If they could only tell me the time. Some days it is 10am. Some days it is 5pm.

All of a sudden it hit me this afternoon that I hadn't thought about the Dundas Pottery show this fall. Guess what - it's this weekend. I went down after work. I came home with a box of beautiful things.

Now some knitting. There are a lot of sporting events this evening.

I'm currently knitting The Shift in the sport weight and it is stunning. I'm wondering what it would be like in Spincycle's worsted weight. The shawl pattern Spincycle has available to support the worsted is lovely, but this Shift is such a great design and maybe worthy of a heavier weight? What do you think?

Hi Candice
I think you should be able to do it. When you do the increases you will need to watch the dimensions in the pattern. You won't increase as many stitches. The pattern says to increase until pattern 6 but you might only get to pattern 4.

Great idea!!! I might look at making one in Dream State. Thanks!!!
