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.

  3. That looks very complex, but the finished shawl is absolutely gorgeous !

    I saw your post on the etsy forums about "how to get blog followers". I like your blog and I'm now following it, hope you will help me get more followers too. :)

    oh btw, blogger had shut out all the followers boxes for a while today, seems it always happens on the etsy forums though, wonder if it was a bug or what?

  4. Hey, Almost Precious--thanks for stopping by! I went and peeked at your blog, and am following now. You do lovely work, and I'm enjoying the pictures of *green*. I miss that out here in the desert southwest. :)

    Glad Blogger is behaving itself again. I love the technology that makes it possible to make friends long distance, though. It is amazing, and I try not to take it for granted. Sure beats sending paper mail, no?
