Catkin designed by Carina Spenser, yarn Dirty Water Dyeworks, size 4 needles.
An interesting construction---knit in quarter sections which makes the shawl really hug your shoulders nicely. The colorwork is achieved with slip-stitches, so there is no yarn tangling or dragging floats across the work. The buttons (mine are Gita Maria) turn this into almost a cape/poncho. It was very fun to knit (in spite of that little adjustment I had to make when I ran out of the gooseberry). I forgot one buttonhole chose to make just 7 buttonholes instead of the 8 the pattern called for (I like the idea of doing odd numbers).
The colors are a tad bit brighter than I usually do....
(This from a woman whose closet looks like this.....)*
(sad, isn't it, when your hangers have more color than your wardrobe!!!)
*I know someone will ask....my collection of black, white, and beige pants and black, white and beige t-shirts live on a shelf!! (and looks just as drab as the closet)
I blogged here (early early on) about my love of grey (The shawl in that post is still my hands-down favorite one !!!)
