Sand and Sea Shawl knit-along

Sand and Sea Shawl

This is the Sand and Sea Shawl designed by Hope Logan of Yarn and Stitches. This shawl was the knitting project on the Sea Purls 2016 Cruise I took a couple of weeks ago. Hope has given me permission to share her pattern so the KiK chapter is going to do a knit along beginning on May 21 (3rd Saturday in May). The shawl pictured is made from Theodora’s Purls Auxanometer. It is 100% bamboo, 5 ply fingering weight, hand dyed yarn. The colors used were Gilded and Seafoam. If you are interested, this yarn will be available at the DFW Fiber Fest. Alissa Barton of the Knitting Fairy told me she would have it in her booth. You are free to use the yarn of your choice. Hope to see you in May!
