I'm so proud of my Water Melon Shawl


I finished my shawl in time, that is, within the month of June, to participate in the drawing in the KAL thread on Ravelry. I'm so happy about the result - can't stop admiring and photograping it. 


You can see lot's of beautful versions in the Ravelry thread. There are som many gorgeous colour combos.

My yarn was, Gjestal Silja Sock, in white, just an ordinary yarn. Then the green is a semisolid merino sock yarn, a bit lighter than what it looks in the photos, Indigo Moon Merino Superwash Fingering Weight. The red is another merino wool, tuLLiBaLL Råkk, coloured by two Norwegians, Siw , band kaos on Ravelry, selling yarn here.  Both the red and the green are beautiful and soft yarns, nice to work with. I have quite a bit left of the green, just a little bit of the red - I'm actually considering making a pair of socks (don't tell anyone...)

I can highly recommend the shawl pattern. I have made two of her shawls before, which I also loved. Her patterns are really well written. She's offering a discount form July 1st, till end of September, as part of the Summer Shawl KAL. You get to hang out on Ravelry with lot's of nice shawl knitters, who can answer any of your questions regarding shawls, and probably most other topics as well. I was tempted to knit another shawl actually, but I restrained myself, and will finish some other wips in stead. (Good girl!)
