I have a new FO to show you.
It’s called Wandering the Moor designed by Celeste Glassel.
I started this project as a destash project.
I still had some unspun Icelandic wool and about 6 skeins of fantasy yarn called Samina by Gedifra. The Samina yarn has a very nice silvery sparkle in it and it’s ideal for adding an extra detail. But 6 skeins is a lot for just details, so I needed a project with a big part of detail.
Both yarns were left overs from this Freya cardigan.
When you look closely at the edgings of the sleeves you can see the fine sparkle.
I believe there is a difference between destash projects and the other ones. It’s about the order of making choices.
For this shawl, I started off with the yarn and then looked for a pattern, whereas I would normally go the other way around.
But let there be no mistake about this. Obviously I really liked the pattern from the first moment I saw it!
I think the contrasting stitch definitions of both yarns work really well and so do the tone-to-tone colors.
My daughter just told me this morning it would probably perfectly match her winter coat…
MMmmm, really? I suppose I understood the message …
