Since I finished my Feathernest Raglan sweater last week I started work on a new shawl. Which, by the way, I am almost done with. It is the Willington Simple Raglan Shawl by Tian Connaughton. It is a fantastically simple shawl, perfect for tv knitting or for me, knitting after I have just finished something very intensive. You just increase every other row until you get to a certain number of stitches on your needles and then do a simple edging, which is what I am right in the middle of. I am knitting this shawl in Malabrigo Rios in the colorway Arco Iris. I cannot tell you exactly what color it is as the color is rainbow. It is GORGEOUS! So many different colors, all the color of the rainbow dyed in the vivid color saturation that only Malabrigo can do. I don’t even see actual colors in this yarn like green or red, I see grass, sunset, sunrise, box of crayons. BRIGHT, VIVID purples, pinks and oranges. I see autumn leaves. This shawl is going to be a favorite I just know it. So may colors. You can see a picture of the gorgeous colors here on my Instagram
As this shawl is almost done, I will probably end up blocking it next weekend and have proper pictures for you then, along with my Feathernest Raglan sweater. I have had a busy weekend so next weekend will have to be a blocking party. I hope I have enough room to block them both.
Ok, I must go and finish this shawl.
Happy knitting everyone.
