I teased you the other day with a glimpse of some variegated blue yarn I began knitting into a shawl recently and now that I've got a few more inches done, it's time to share some details, don't you think?
The pattern is called Sugared Violets by Rose Beck, and when it first was released as part of the Be Mine collection, I was fortunate enough to win it during a giveaway. It's hard to believe that it's taken me two years to cast on this shawl (or any shawl from that collection), but as we knitters know, some patterns have to be cast on immediately while others stay in our minds and linger until we're ready.
As I've been knitting monogamously on a test knit for the last few weeks which, by the way, is fantastic, I realized that my hands and brain could use a palate cleanser to keep my mojo going. So, I went stash diving and was reacquainted with my one skein of Ball and Skein Glissade which I purchased at a sheep & fiber fair exactly a year ago next week.
I'm calling this project Blue Sugared Violets and it might end up as a gift to a very special someone for a very special occasion but that's all I can say for now.
There are some elements to this pattern that has got me thinking .... but I'll share more about that tomorrow.
