I decided it was time for a little spring cleaning. I had two shawls in different states of finishing: my Drops of Honey Shawl not started and Claire Randall Fraser one-quarter knit.
The Drops of Honey shawl is the first installment of Indie Untangled’s Where We Knit Club, and since I knew the next installment was shipping May 1, I was motivated to cast on-cast off.
This is my first time using merino-silk yarn. It was quite the treat! The golden-honey hue is not one I would pick for my blue-grey-turquoise loving self, but I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. It’s a great neutral and can be paired with anything. My son, who was fascinated with this project, compared the shawl to honeycomb. Sounds like something an aspiring knitter would say.
Besides the merino-silk fiber, this is also my first time knitting a Janina Kallio pattern. But it won’t be my last. In the meantime, I’m woefully behind on my Among Friend’s Outlander Club knitting. We’re in year two of the club, and I’m working up the second installment from year one! But I’m 6 rows away from binding off! I hope to have FO pics next week.
