First in a series of two (so far) shawls that seek to show off gorgeous, hand dyed variegated sock yarns in unusual ways. Designed as part of my portfolio for the Rhode Island School of Design Hand Knitting Program. Dot separates out the colors into dots against a solid background. Watching the colors separate and unfold across the shawl is gratifying. The idea is to use your favorite variegated (or solid) sock yarn against any brand of fingering/sock weight yarn. The dots are made without turning your work (unlike many bobbles) and once you've done a few they become meditative - you will look forward to dot rows. Yarn amounts: 400/650 yards of background fingering/sock yarn and 250 yards of variegated or contrast yarn for the dots.

Passionate about knitting and creativity. Love variegated yarns used in unusual ways and wallpaper also used in unusual ways. Hoping to continue my knitting design and also hopeful that one day it will help me pay back my medical school loans.
