Design in Progress

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.
The shawls I've designed for Done Roving in the past (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.
Sideways! It's been a while since I've done a sideways shawl, and it's time for a new one. I'm absolutely in love with the variegation - both in the stockinette section and in the lace border.

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!
