Lately I’ve been working on the Find Your Fade Shawl by Andrea Mowry and a special collaboration that I can’t wait to show y’all but that will have to wait.  Since I used to live on the Gulf of Mexico, I took my inspiration for my colors from the Ocean.

Here are some of the colors that I chose for the shawl.    I’m using fingering weight, size 4 circular needles — Mint Chip by Nice and Knit; Robin Egg by Nice and Knit; Sagamore by Nice and Knit; Jungle Bungalow by PrimRose; Grumpy Jelly by PrimRose and Are You Sure Hank Done It That Way by Farmers Daughter.  These yarns are so soft and wonderful.  These were all purchased at Bliss Yarns.

I have really enjoyed making this shawl.  It’s so hard to put it down to get other work done.  I’ve never done lace before so it is definitely a challenge.

The shawl looks pretty crazy when you start out.  Several people asked me if I was making a bikini.

I finally made it through Section 8 after taking parts of that section out at least two times and I am now beginning Section 9.  This part is garter stitch blending in my new color.

It sounds crazy but I finally realized that it would be much easier with Lace needles.  So hopefully, they will arrive this week before I get to Section 10 which is more lace.

I will keep you posted and wish everyone a Safe and Happy Fourth of July!!

Happy knitting!
