My Shift

There has been a lot of knitting the last few days on my Shift. One more section of increases and then the decreases start.

Today was the first day in forever that I haven’t gone to the store which left me time to knit and make signs for Saturday.

Joji has a new pattern. This is the Wispy Shawl and you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or on Joji’s website.

I love one skein shawls… I know they are an easy project to jump on, they allow us to dream big with a small investment (just one skein) and they just make every single yarn of a very special yarn count.  
And while this shawl is not technically a one-skein project, it ALMOST is, and it was born as a one-skein idea to me, so hopefully you will find one special skein to make it!For this shawl you will need 1 skein of laceweight yarn (I used mohair) and a few yards (50y tops) of a coordinating fingering weight yarn (I used leftovers). 
I love designing with negative space. The new popularity of mohair has allowed me to play with light and shadows in my knitting, creating see-through textures and delicate contrasts.  
For Wispy, I used two yarns in a similar shade of dusty pink, but you can use completely different colors, to make the solid striping stand out more.

Don’t forget about LYS Day this Saturday September 12.
