|Brooklyn Tweed Shelter: Plume|
|Here is Shelter with The Fibre Company's Road to China Light:|
When looking for a big, rustic shawl pattern that would work well with this yarn, I remembered my Pure Worsted shawl by cabinfour that I knit in the summer. I looked at her pattern page and as soon as I saw the Farmhouse shawl I knew I had found the pattern I was looking for. I love how picking a pattern to knit can be so simple sometimes. This was one of those instances.
Within eight days I had this beauty:

Preblocking this shawl measured 54" x 23" and after blocking it measure 70" x 28", which was exactly the size I was looking for. Perfect for cozying up under.
I had never used Brooklyn Tweed Shelter before. I enjoyed knitting with it and only had one instance where the yarn broke, when I accidentally tugged it too hard. I love the Plume colourway with flecks of pink, blue and red and I was impressed with how the yarn softened up after blocking. I definitely see what the hype about this yarn is all about.
