Yarn: Louet Gems Sport weight on size 5 needles Colorway, Linen Grey
This pattern is written in old school style, at least that is how I see it. It is one size and the directions are very direct. I just love how my raglan increases look in this yarn, such awesome stitch definition. The silhouette of this design is a scoop neck, short sleeve top with bands of seed stitch detail. I must say, I scored on the yarn from WEBS, $6.99 a skein instead of the retail price of $15.50.

Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted in Amethyst and Peacock on size 10.5 needles.
I have made this shawl at least four times. I love the size and the border of lace. Because I am here in Maine, away from my stash, I have been looking at what I have on hand. The amethyst is leftover from my test knit sweater, the peacock I had with me for the tubular cast on. The two multi colored balls are from a de-stash purchase. I thought I would use them as accent garter rows but have decided to wait and use them to make a crochet button necklace with color coordinated buttons I saw at Joann's.
I started this on Monday and it has flown, thanks to the big needles and worsted weight yarn. I have run out of yarn and am thinking the border will be a harvest gold or ruby red. I need to see if Central Yarns still caries Brown Sheep. Funny how trying to use up stash inevitably involves making another yarn purchase??
