I have also cast on a Sunny Days Shawlette using some of my handspun yarn.The yarn is a hand dyed alpaca/wool mix and I'm finding it really interesting how the stripy 'v' effect is created as the shawlette progresses.
The Sunny Days Shawlette pattern is currently being offered for free for the month of May from Carle @ Nurturing Fibres. It's a good, easy, relaxing knit that doesn't require much concentration - perfect for taking out or those evening knitting sessions when you're tired from the day but still
Becoming a little more acquainted with shawlettes, I am thinking of making another and have been eyeing of the Holden Shawlette for some time. It's definitely on my list of things to make at some point!
In anticipation, I've begun spinning up some merino top, which I'm hoping to ply with some silk that I happened to pick up at the Handspinners and Weavers Guild last week (yet to be spun!).
It's a good thing it's chilly outside and the fire is on and cranking..it's perfect knitting and spinning weather!
What's been on your needles, hook or wheel lately?
