I finished the turquoise and orange shawl and it’s now available in the Etsy shop. It reminds me of the desert southwest, New Mexico in particular. As I was knitting it in public (at Panera, waiting rooms, etc.), a lot of people commented on the great colors, and mentioned New Mexico. It was a favorite of the public!
I’m very happy with the colors (which will look great on almost anyone), the drape, the texture and the shape of this shawl. It’s a winner, and I’m sure I’ll knit this pattern again very soon. I have some KnitPicks Chroma that I plan to use on version 3 of this pattern. You may remember version 1 was Noro Silver Thaw.
I almost hope no one buys this, as I wouldn’t mind at all if I get to keep it. I seem to say that about a lot of my finished items!
