Feeling the shawl love...

I'm going through another shawl loving stage.  Having recently cast off another (yes, I think this is number 5!) Ishbel I am addicted again.  This latest one was knitted for my mum whose birthday it was a few weeks ago :)  It actually still needs to be blocked so I'll post a picture once I've done that.   Hmm, really should get on to it! 

On the needles now I have a Brangian.  This pattern is written by Bronwyn Parry and I've been meaning to purchase and knit it ever since it was released.  It is a great pattern, written very well and I am really enjoying seeing the shawl come together.  I'm knitting it in a 4ly I hand dyed myself.  I'm having a lot of trouble getting an accurate photo of the colour, but here's a photo of it straight out of the dye pot. 

It is a very subtle variation of colours and I'm really liking how it's knitting up so far.  Hope to have some finished photos for you soon :)


  1. Nice colour! Did you use the Pacific coloured dye? Did you use any other colours?

  2. Thanks :) Yes, it's a mixture of Pacific, Sage (I think) and Alfalfa. It looked like a real solid in the pot but now dried and knitted you can definately see the different colours :)
