Here it is.. My kidney bean Settler shawl. If you are following me on IG, you know that it was blocked twice (forgot one repeat, oops), and that I kept on cursing the weather as I could not take any picture outside. So I came back home yesterday, and although it was raining in London, it was sunny once I was home. That was it, time to take pictures of the shawl.
It is really difficult to actually capture the colour - it is even more gorgeous in real life. I have one more skein left and I cannot wait to knit a beanie hat, and maybe mittens (let's face it summer is over here in Britain - so may as well embrace the colder months).
Libby released her pattern yesterday - congrats to her! This is really a beautiful modern shawl, and that can be worn many ways. I am much more of a scarf person, so this is a great addition to my wardrobe. When she asked me to test a shawl, I was worried about the shape of it, but I should not have been worried!
Pattern: Settler Shawl by Truly Myrtle Designs
Yarn: Artesano Definition Sock yarn in kidney bean (one skein)
Modifications: None but it may be worth noting that my gauge was totally off, and it still the required length (in case you gauge for shawl...)
