Q&A with Amadeit

fybmwl asked:
Absolutely love the colors in the yarn, you brought them out well. Is it hand-dyed or did you buy it somewhere?
Amadeit answered:
Thanks! I bought the yarn, but the photo is a bit false - in reality there is more green to the shades, it's rather teal and turquoise. My camera doesn't like these colors, so I can never get them right.
Sheila Zachariae asked:
This shawl is so beautiful! Can you share a link to purchase the yarn?
Amadeit answered:
Thank you! Sure I can - I bought my yarn at www.e-dziewiarka.pl - the yarn is called Alize Angora Gold DB, color number 1892. Here's the link to the official color chart: http://tinyurl.com/7tmdp2o (My photos show a great color indeed, but in reality it's more green than blue. But I still love it:))).

This is gorgeous! I love the pattern, too! Would you mind sharing how many stitches you cast on to make the shawl this size? Thanks!
Amadeit answered:
Thank you! I cast on 99 sts and knitted till I ran out of yarn:)
