This is the Daybreak Shawl by Stephen West. I used hand dyed yarn by Alexandra's Crafts in the Baby Silver Falls color way, and Lorna's Shepherd Sock in the Hermosa color way.
Then I got seven skeins of Knitpicks 100% merino dk weight yarn that I had to re-skein for dying. I needed longer skeins so I could tie knots in the yarn to create a resist.
Here's the dyed yarn wound up into cakes. It was impossible to capture the colors with my camera. I divided each skein into two balls so I could mix them up while knitting.
I started knitting the Calligraphy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig. This is the ribbing for the neck. Notice the size 6 Signature needles that Mark bought me for my birthday. Yay!
In my next post I'll show off my new Fancy Kitty Kitten Motorized drum carder!
