Playing

I've had a lot of fun playing around with some yarny leftovers while waiting for space to be made for blocking the Kaleidoscope capelets. (Our house is in disarray from decluttering right now). Anyway, I grabbed the Chroma Worsted New England colorway left over from the large sized Kaleidoscope sample, then threw in a bit of Andean Silk and some Suri Dream leftover from previous projects, both in solid navy blue. I then just knit a triangle shawl with fewer center increases (which made for an odd diamond shape, but it still is snuggly.) I had the most fun changing the texture of the stitches. If there is enough interest, I might go ahead and write up a pattern for a more standard shallow triangular shawl shape with some of the textures. I had fun making it, and I am already looking forward for a chilly fall day when I can snuggle in all that merino and alpaca!

Pretty! It reminds me a bit of the Jambalaya Shawl (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jambalaya-shawl), which I just favorited on Ravelry a few days ago!!

You understand I know nothing about knitting, but I do recognize beauty when I see it.
