I prefer deeper colors

I’m not a fan of pastel colors.  I like deeper colors.  So why were these three 200-yard skeins of pastel yarn in my stash?

Those four little words…it was on sale.

The Ka’ana Shawl by Jennifer Weissman takes 600 yards of worsted weight yarn.  This Wool of the Woods – Capri is dk but since it is a shawl, it’s an okay substitute.  The yarn is very splitty so I have to be very careful when knitting so I get all the super fine threads that make up the strand.

 

This cotton shawl will be just the thing to wrap around my shoulders on a summer evening to ward off a bit of a chill while relaxing on the deck or porch with a glass of wine.

Nineteen rows into the leafy lace pattern.

I started on the last ball of yarn and still have fourteen more rows before three rows of garter and bind off.  Another game of yarn chicken might be afoot…
