I finished 21 projects in 2016 and have two more I’m trying desperately to finish. One project particularly stands out as a favorite, a project that took me well out of my comfort zone, my Fringed shawl.
While I knit with a yarn I love (Hedgehog Fibres Merino DK, yum!), I did not use colors typical to me nor do I typically wear massive shawls with a ton of fringe. Yet I could not resist…
I love the boho, free spirited vibe it gives off. I used the following color ways:
- Monarch (top section)
- Electric (bright blue stripes and cast off row)
- Pollen (golden section)
- Purple Reigns (deep purple, bottom section)
- The fringe was created using leftovers of all the colors
A few more pictures at additional angles, unfortunately it is quite dark in my office this morning, hard to capture the vibrancy of the blue.
As I look towards 2017 I have a few shawls I am trying to decide between as my first project:
I probably have enough yarn in stash to knit all of them next year 🙂 The question is, in which order?
Off to see if I can finish up the scarf and shawl before the 1st!
