I really am in a purple state of mind...if you read my last couple of blogs ( here and here)I had recently purchased some purple yarn. Well here is a shawl that I just finished that is purple too! It is a new pattern by Hilary Smith Callis called Shadow and Glow. I really like the way she wears the shawl in several different ways. I always find that a bit of a challenge...figuring out how to wear a shawl comfortably.
It is a very relaxing knit using two colours of yarn. I choose Malabrigo sock in violeta african and Madelinetosh Eyre Light in Jacaranda Bloom. This was the first time I used Eyre Light, a merino, silk and alpaca blend and it was an absolute delight to work with. Incredibly soft to touch. Here are my notes about the pattern.
