Colorwork is fascinating. It is also deceptively simple. It looks complex, but it is easier than it looks. No purling, no YOs...just knit, round and round until you end up with a gorgeous shawl full of drape and color ( or a lap blanket!). Because the colors are floated often, the back looks as nice as the front. This shawl worked up quite fast because it is knitted on #10 circular needles. I used one skein each of Valley Yarns Charlemont --a gorgeous blend of Merino and Mulberry Silk--Natual, Deep Sea and Forest. Forest Cathedral took most of the Natural, and more than half of the two greens. You can choose your own color scheme. This would be a great starter project for those new to colorwork. Pattern includes links to my helpful, brief Youtube colorwork tutorials. GAUGE 18 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in Gauge is not critical here, but the above was acheived after blocking. PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Valley Yarn--Charlemont

I love everything about knitting...knitting itself, designing and now, creating yarn for you to use when working my patterns. Let me customize the blend and colorways you want: Some people see a gorgeous sunset and photograph it. Others paint it. I knit it. Fiber and fabric are my media. Knitting the sunset makes it mine.
