Again, before you all rush to comment on how brilliantly creative I am, I remind you - I am a copier. This time I took inspiration from Jane Thornley. Jane, who is brilliantly creative, does pieces with beautiful yarns knit in random order. Jane also does lots of short-row techniques in her pieces to make them even more spectacular. That would have been way too time-consuming and 'hard' for me. I wanted quick & easy, a 'wear-it-THIS-summer' knit. A type of 'done-before-dinner' knit.
Remember how I wondered if I had stash yarns in the brown colour-way? I needn't have worried. Look at the throw on my bed.
These are my colours. I own those colours!
But now the question is - Is it a shawl or a shrug?
Presented as a shawl.
And now - as best I can while doing a self-portrait - the shrug view.
I will write up the pattern over the next couple of days and post it on the blog. In the meantime I hope you all have a Ta-Da! weekend.
