Prepare yourself: gushing ahead.
I finished my Canopy.
This is a pattern by Melody Hoffman. I knit it out of baa ram ewe Titus in the Brambley Baths colorway. The yarn is a Wensleydale, Alpaca, BFL blend that is dreamy to the extreme. I’ve said it before, but it is the perfect blend of rustic and delicate, so woolly and luxurious. I purchased the yarn on a trip to Denver last fall. I cannot recommend this yarn or the pattern any more. I am utterly entranced.
It’s the perfect size, and I fancy the color is rather nice on me. I took selfies with it all day yesterday:
Apologies for the barrage of pictures, but I couldn’t just pick a few. This shawl fits so nicely with my wardrobe architect project. The color is right in line with my palette–I’m really digging the muted, murky blue-green. The lace and stockinette panels with the soft points of the border are just the epitome of feminine and cozy.
I think I’ll just go snuggle the shawl and tell it how great it is.
