It's been some time since a knitting update, although that's not to say that I haven't been knitting. Instead I have been slow to take photos, often gifting finished items prior to snapping a picture.
The Pattern: Hayley's Comet by Plucky Knitter
My most recent finished knit is Hayley's Comet Shawl, a pattern by Plucky Knitter. This shawl is a relatively easy project with a nice balance of knit, knit, knit as well as a more detailed stitch pattern repeated across one side of the shawl. The pattern was charted which I prefer (written instructions also form part of the pattern). Perfect for TV knitting.
The Yarn: Plucky Bello in the following colorways:
As You Wish
Skies of November
The yarn (which I purchased as a kit for this particular project) is a gorgeous fingering weight yarn - 55% Merino, 45% Cashmere - easy to wind from skein and a pleasure to knit with; no knots, not splitty, no color run, and blocked beautifully. I love these wearable colors and I also really like that the shawl is long, measuring more than 65 inches along the straight top edge. It will wrap and wrap beautifully. Perfect for Winter.
