Lately I’ve been in a knitting funk. I have been working on some stuff but nothing that I can’t WAIT to knit.
I finally found it. The Vortex Shawl.
One of my purchases at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival this year was two Paintbox Gradient kits from Fiber Optics Yarn. It was a madhouse when we stepped into the booth. There was nowhere to really turn, we sort of had to wait in line to even get to the Paintboxes. I knew I wanted one but at the time with the rush and the crush, I should have really waited. I picked out two and paid. After I bought them I was sort of having buyers remorse (never thought that would happen with yarn!). I loved the colors but they just weren’t me.
I decided a few nights ago I really wanted to use them. So after searching Ravelry for a few hours and looking at what other people made with their gradient kits, I stumbled upon this shawl. I had it in my favorites for awhile & decided to give it a shot. I am in love with this pattern! It is so easy and easy to memorize.
