My dear Keith of Knits All Done sent me a gorgeous skein of Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted in Midnight in Manhattan. It’s so soft and the blue is so deep and rich. I don’t usually do shawls but I loved the idea of having this around my neck (and I was burned out on cowls). I knit a garter stitch triangle until I was almost out and then ended with some feather and fan to give it a scalloped edge.
I loved it so much, I named it in an homage to my favorite Muppets movie and then made my mom one in Tosh Merino DK in Twig, a rich and multifaceted brown.
Just in time to hand it out at Amy Hendrix’ color theory class at StevenBe, I wrapped up the pattern last night. The folks in the shop got an exclusive release but I’ve got it up on Ravelry now!
Of course, Keith’s equipment is much more sophisticated than mine!
