Ocean Weaves Shawl

Today I want to present you one of my new shawls - its design is based on traditional Shetland shawls.

I used a beautiful yarn by King Cole called Riot DK - it's a single ply, double knitting yarn that comes in various colors - I'm absolutely in love with it, this is my 2nd shawl knitted with this yarn and definitely not the last one!

Here's one of the projects I'm working on right now. Have to say I like it a lot!

Purple hand dyed yarn for a custom order!

A new yarn I hand dyed for a custom ordered shawl. It was a difficult one, the yarn seems not to like a blue dye but I finally managed to get the color I wanted. I had to dye it 4 times to get the hue but it was definitely worth it!.

That reminds me I have to order more undyed merino/angora yarn - that was my last skein and I have to say I really love the feel of this yarn. It's very nice and soft and is not as "solid" as pure merino.

Here's a shawl I hand knitted using the same type of yarn, dyed olive green.

Quick post-Christmas update

I'm back and have 2 brand new shawls ready to be listed in my shop! Just have to fix the rest of the images and I'll be ready to go. Both of them are 100% natural wool, very nice and soft. Can't decide which one I like more - these are two of my very favorite colors.

I will be updating the shops with new items during the weekend, somehow I still can't force myself to go back to my standard routine.
