Garden Wool & Dye Knit Along

I’m doing a knit along through September with Garden Wool & Dye on Ravelry. The only requirement is to use Garden Wool & Dye yarn. I was going to make socks in the light wash denim colorway, as I’m always making socks.  I really like the yarn, but I started thinking that I wouldn’t love it as socks. Denim colored socks with jeans just seemed a little too Canadian tuxedo to me.

A few days ago I noticed the Study Hall Shawl on Raverly. Since then I can’t stop thinking about it. I decided it would be a great thing to make for the knit-a-long. Admittedly, it is an odd selection as I do not wear shawls. Maybe this one will change my mind.

I have a beautiful pink from Garden Wool & Dye to go with the light wash denim yarn.20180805_1942475039818185124328470.jpg

I do think my swift was revolting against the thought of me making a shawl.20180805_1951312206151228842140501.jpgBut I fixed that problem with pretty duct tape. 20180805_1953215345038638804023996.jpg

Now I have the yarn ready to go. I just need to get to the library to print off the pattern and I’m ready to go.

Should I be starting a shawl when I have socks and a sweater on the needles? No, but the heart wants what the heart wants, and today that is a shawl in colors I never wear.

    You can never have too many projects and they’ll all get finished at some point:)
    I say go for the shawl in different colours. I did a sweater in colours new to me and ended up loving it:)
