|TFA Year in Colour Club in Truffle|
She chose a lovely yarn and color, and I knew right away that I wanted to cast on. So, I went stash diving and found my first TFA Year in Colour Club skein which had been lying in wait for some attention.
This beautiful skein of fingering weight came with an original pattern by Hannah Fettig but when I stumbled upon this yarn again, I instantly saw how it would be lovely knit up as an Oaklet Shawl. I know, it's almost the opposite of GSheller's version -- her's is solid and pale, mine is variegated and smokey. Still, the subtle color changes throughout the skein is keeping me excited to see the shawl to the end.
This is my first time knitting with Tanis' yarn, and I'm loving the texture and fabric that's developing in my hands. I'm knitting this with my Red Lace US5 needles (I know, didn't I just write about wanting to get back to my comfort zone of US7s or US8s?), but when the yarn and pattern is perfect as is, who am I to mess with perfection?
