Country Sky triloom shawl
Last weekend at the dye retreat, the evenings got a little chilly. Luckily, I had packed one of my triloom shawls to throw around my shoulders. It worked really well, and was soft and snuggly to boot. That reminded me of how much fun they are to weave, and that I hadn't made one in way too long. And then, when I got home and was organizing my studio (it looked like a sheep had sneezed, what with all the fleece scattered about...) I found a couple of balls of yarn that I had picked out awhile ago and never gotten around to making up. So, I just had to spend the first part of the week playing on the triloom!
My daughter agreed to model again for me today, so I could get some shots of it for the Etsy shop. She just graduated from high school, and will be going off to college in the fall. Hmm...I'm going to have to figure out something else to do for a shawl model come fall.
I love the way these colors worked with each other. Maybe it is time to visit the yarn store, to go see how some other skeins look together.
