Finished Knit: Victorian Romance (GKMS09)

I love how this shawl turned out! It's was a little smaller than I expected at first, but it blocked out to a very nice size.

The yarn is a Knit Picks Bare yarn that I dyed myself using Kool-Aid. It was really cool to knit with my own hand dyed.

One of these days I'll have to do a shawl with hand dyed and hand spun yarn. Also, sunset is an awesome time to take pictures of knitting.

Pattern: Victorian Romance by Renee Leverington

Yarn: Knit Picks Bare Merino in what I'm calling "Strawberry" - 126 grams/1109 yards

Needles: US 2.5/3.0 mm Addi Turbo circulars

Knitline: March 18th - December 30th

YTD Mileage: This shawl brings me up to 5.83 miles!

Happy Knitting,

I love the name and I love, love that color. It looks beautiful blocked. You are just amazing. I would love it too, if someday you had your own wool that you did yourself, I did dream last night someone left three goats in a box on the front porch. I just didn't dream if they were wool goats or meat goats.
