This shawl flew off the needles! The pattern is Stephen West’s Dotted Rays, one of my favorites. I think this is my fourth one (and it won’t be the last).
The yarn is from Gauge Dye Works. It’s a self striping yarn that employs ‘shawl striping’ which means the stripes are different lengths rather than a classic stripe where the stripes are all the same length. Check out my recent Hydrogen Shawl to see another example of shawl stripes.
Unfortunately, I thought this was classic stripes when I started knitting, meaning it doesn’t matter which end you start from. Turns out, it was shawl stripes and I essentially knit it ‘backwards’. Whatever, I like it this way, especially because it’s different.
I’m not even upset by the lack of color. I’ve got one more skein from Gauge Dye Works. It’s called Fade to Yellow.
I’m not sure what to do with it just yet. It’s gotta be something I can knit in the dark though. I need a new movie theater project stat! Bill Murray and I are going to see Groundhogs Day this afternoon!! Talk about FriYAY! Woooo!
