Pattern: Aeolian Shawl by Elizabeth Freeman (Ravel that sucker!)
Yarn: XS-6 20/3 Bamboo from Habu Textiles; White
I bound off Saturday night, and blocked it on Sunday. The sun has finally come out today, so I’m going to get my boy to take some pics out in the sunlight.
I love the sheen of this yarn. It was so nice to work with, and the fabric it created is just glorious. I still have half of a skein left, which I already have plans for. 😛
I’ve changed my mind about the yarn I want to use for my next Aeolian; I ordered some wonderfully yummy Merino laceweight yarn from The Woolen Rabbit, which I think will be perfect. It’s a deep purple, like the other yarn, but I think it will be interesting to do this shawl in a springy Merino yarn. I’m already swatching to determine what size needles to use, and hopefully I’ll be casting on tonight! Seriously, I think I need an intervention. 😛
What a beautiful piece of workmanship!! Good job sweetie!! But you are so hopelessly hooked! Poor Josh 🙂
Oh my good-goodness!!! This is amazing! Just beautiful. Excellent work!
That is awesomely beautiful! You did a great job on it. Now I want to cast on but need to find just the right yarn. I’m anxious to see how you like the merino vs. the bamboo.
