Just to show off

Something I’ve been wanting to show off for a few weeks; I finished this a few days before I went into the hospital. Yarn: Lisa Souza’s alpaca laceweight, Shade Garden colorway, one strand, knitted together with one strand of Misti Alpaca baby alpaca laceweight that I overdyed in solid Jacquard Purple. I picked a more reddish purple for my dye than Lisa’s, and really like the way the two yarns played together. The shawl pattern is a one-off that I didn’t bother to write down; after knitting roughly three dozen+ shawls over the last two years in the course of writing my book, well, by now I can just kind of wing it as I go along, you know?

Thank you! That photo didn’t show a whole lot of the shawl, but it was the best one of me; vanity and all that… I’m still teaching the youngest that you have to take a bunch of shots to be able to pick out a really good one.
