It's a Color Affection

Wow, I went to wear by Color Affection Shawl yesterday and realized that I never blogged about it. Oops. Well, better late than never. :)

So back in August I picked up some Plucky Knitter Primo Fingering at Stitches Midwest to turn into a Color Affection shawl.

That's House of Bourbon, Glacier and Oatmeal colorways. I was worried it might look a little too "Christmas-y" but I think it came out just fine:

The red bled a little bit when I blocked it. Guess I maybe should have rinsed the skein or something first. But, I still love it and slight red/pink tinge doesn't bother me one bit. I wear this thing all the time.

The only modification I made to the pattern was I did yarnovers for the increases and twisted them closed on with my stitch on the next row. My friend, Jenni, who has knit three of these made that suggestion and I don't question her at all when it comes to the knitting. She knows her stuff.

Have you knit a Color Affection? If so, what yarn/colors did you use. I loved knitting this so much I am considering knitting another one. Suggestions please!

Happy knitting!

Love the colors in this shawl! I did one which I purchased as a kit from Miss Babys and I'm currently working on a second one also from a kit from Miss Babs. I stink at picking out colors so the work is done for me. You obviously don't need help but you could buy single skeins from her. They're gorgeous!
