Just in time for the first forecast of snow, finished woollies!
The shawl has been lingering on the needles for a year now. It was the first shipment of the AVFKW Pro-Verbial club, Blue Whale shawl by Stephen West, AVFKW indigo dyed Luster yarn (75% BFL wool, 25% tussah silk). I didn’t love it during knitting, hence the long stall, but love it now that it’s been blocked. The texture of the pattern is great and the yarn gives it a nice drape. It’ll be a nice addition to the winter accessory pile.
This isn’t the first appearance of these socks here, I may be slightly obsessed
The yarn is Noro Silk Garden Sock purchased at Windsor Button. One skein was more than enough and surprisingly resulted in perfectly matching socks. For a singles yarn it feels like it will hold up fine, it’s tough stuff. I have another skein of this, matching gloves may be in order.
Bonus – the obligatory modeled shot
