Meditation on the Beach - New Shawl Design

I was working with the Altered Stitch yarn store on a trunk show when I spotted this beautiful yarn.

We cooked up a plan for me to design a shawl with this lovely yarn from The Flying Kettle.
And, today I released Meditation on the Beach shawl.

Simple garter stitch and stockinette stitch combine with sinuous short rows to give this asymmetrical triangle shawl its unique look. The colors flow through the hues of a beach sunset, giving you the fun of watching the yarn yield up its mysteries.
Meditative knitting, along with a gorgeous gradient yarn, combine for a relaxing yet satisfying knitting experience.
The shawl is knit to a looser gauge to create a soft cushy fabric that drapes nicely. It is worked from the narrow point to the wide end.

Until Feb. 20, get 25% off with coupon code MEDSHAWL.

Is anyone interested in a Knit Along? I will supply prizes ! Let me know in my Ravelry group here.

Shawl can be made larger if you have more yarn. Size shown uses one skein (360 yds/325m) of sport weight yarn.
The instructions include directions to make a larger shawl.
If you're going to Stitches West (Feb. 18-21 in Santa Clara CA), look for it in the Altered Stitches Booth. It's even prettier in person :-)




A Blog I've Been Reading

I've really been enjoying Jill Wolcott's blog. Jill is a wonderful designer whose work I have long admired. She shares great insights and information on her blog. Currently she has a series of posts called Obstacles in Knitting.
Her post on Finishing is fabulous. Have a look!
