Over the last few months, I've done a few designs for Done Roving Yarns. Paula has some very interesting and beautiful yarn, and it's been a fun challenge to design for her Transitions and Gradient lines. Recently, she sent me some Monochromatic-Dyed Gradient yarn in DK weight to play with. It's so pretty.
Savanna, Beddington and The Danielle Shawl) all start top-down. I love knitting top-down shawls, but I'm going for something a little different this time.
The shawl (I think) will be an asymmetrical triangle. I have in my head how I want to decrease later in the shawl, but I'm not 100% it will work. If not, I'll probably go for adding the border to live stitches at the end. That's the fun of designing....it can be a real adventure!
My sister and I are going to Mexico next month (thank you sister for having a corporate job with free trips to Mexico as a perk) and plan on doing the photo shoot on the beach while we are there. Can't wait!
