FO Friday 94

Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week and a great holiday if you are in the US. As mentioned in my post yesterday, we just hung around the house but it was nice and relaxing.

I've been busy with updates to Candy Skein Yummy fingering, which was posted yesterday including a new colorway, Rainbow Fruit Chews! Be sure to check it out. :)

As promised on Wednesday, I'm going to share my Trillian shawl! I love how it turned out and can't wait to make another one. I think it's a perfect pattern for variegated yarns. The way this yarn pooled, it makes me think of either a marble, or when I used to use Silly Putty to copy Sunday comics from the news paper and then would stretch it!


 I was SOOO excited to block it, I forgot to measure it and take a picture of it after it was finished but before it was soaking. I used T pins to block it, as I don't have blocking wires. I have to say, due to the garter stitch, this thing GREW. It just about tripled in size.


And here I am wearing it. Excuse the none matching, but my husband took this on 4th of July so I was wearing red, white and blue! The shawl doesn't exactly match, but I didn't want to change just for the picture. LOL



Materials:
Pattern: Trillian shawl
Yarn: Candy Skein Yummy fingering in Sock Club June '12  colorway Lemongrass Sour
Needles: US 4 (3.5MM) Knit Picks Harmony



Have a great weekend!

  8. Your shawl looks great, fresh and perfect for summer!

    I'm about to explode as it is the last day of term. Unfortunatelly, my students know how to bring me to this poin. Fortunatelly, they know how to please me. :-) They gave me two balls of lovely silky yarn ...

    I wish you all a nice weekend, I'm sure I'm going to enjoy mine.
