Take a Look! My Dash Shawl by Knit Collage

Dash Shawl by Knit Collage

I completed my first knitalong! Look at my gorgeous Dash Shawl by Knit Collage. What a fun project! And, fast! Usually, I don’t participate in knitalongs because I hate feeling behind. Fun knitting always comes last in my world, so I am eternally behind. But, in this case, give me those size 19 needles and a week of vacation, and I do just fine! Plus, good news, I get to offer you 15% off anything at Knit Collage with the code FLAXANDTWINE!

I love the boho, fringe-y feel of this shawl. I am a super neat and tidy knitter. In past years, a project like this with unevenly spun yarn would have thrown me into a tizzy. But, I must be loosening up or something, because I love the texture and the variety in the yarn and pattern. It feels organic and natural in a way I love.

One note, I did run out of the main cream Sister yarn once I started doing the fringe. I went a little too far on the shawl because I wanted the length. I just used a little bit of super bulky yarn I had on hand, and I don’t think anyone will notice.

Weaving in the Pixie Dust yarn at the end was super fun, too. It has just a bit of sparkle in there which adds a twist of fun.

The Dash Shawl by Knit Collage pattern was super easy to follow and although it is lace, it was fairly mindless knitting, which I like for vacations. The shawl has more going on than I’m used to, but the neutral tone calms it down a little. And, with my simple dresses, Ts and jeans, I think it will fit into my wardrobe easily.

I even had Allie (who took all the model shots – talented daughter of mine!) take a photo of me. Go check out Knit Collage for all sorts of fun yarns. Amy’s fiber opens your horizons as a knitter in exciting ways. As I am busily working away on my next book, I can tell you her yarn makes for gorgeous weaving too!
