Leaves in a Stream

Mr. Canada Post came this morning with a box from Lynda. A new store sample that is beautiful. There will be more pictures later this week and then again when Lynn gets back from the cottage. It was way too hot to be outside today.

Autumn has always been my very favorite time of the year. Crisp air, intense blue skies, and the achingly beautiful colors of fall foliage. My first version of this shawl was the greens, golds, and greys, pictured here on my younger son. As it was taking shape, it reminded me of days spent watching leaves flowing and converging, floating in and out of the sunlight as they played in a Northern California waterway. And so, I began thinking of this shawl as Leaves in a Stream and soon I couldn’t call it by any other name. Two gradient colorways intertwine, and with German short rows, create a stunning play of light and shape in fingering or aran/worsted weight yarn.

This is a pattern from Rosemary (Romi) Hill and you can purchase it on her website.

The shawl is knit with 2 Freia Shawl balls - we used Pt. Reyes and Autumn Rose

For this shawl you must weigh your yarn as you are going. Romi suggests a small pocket scale. This is the link she sent me from Amazon. Any small scale will work.

Someone is adding older Kaffe Fassett patterns to Ravelry. This is from Rowan Magazine #7. What a work of art. I was in love with this the minute the magazine came out.

I almost missed the rainbow.
