After finishing my last knit for a Silent Auction, it was time to move on to the next one.
This time I dyed the yarn on a mystery sport weight wool. I'm 99.9% sure it is a merino superwash - I'm just not sure what supplier I got it from. It is soft and has a great sheen so I know it is a good one. Of course it is - I'm too much of a yarn snob not to have something yummy to play with.
I had in mind a soft yellow as it is a "color" of the organization that this is for. Since I don't know who will get this and what their skin tone may be, I toned it down a bit for more of an earthy yellow. I'm pleased on the color.
Finding the right knit was more difficult than deciding on the color. I finally went with the Aestlight Shawl by Shetland Trader. It was a fun knit to do. I love garter on a shawl as tons of stockinette makes me a bit weary. The lace part reminds me of flower petals which also went with the group's representative flower.
All in all, I'm glad I got it done in time and I hope it will make someone feel great when they wear it.
