I’m in love with gradients. I’ve been alternating this with the Spectra since the end of October. I love knitting it and still can’t decide if it was the gradient yarn or the lace pattern that kept me enthralled.
Moving on. My Rav project page is here.
Pattern – Watering in the Garden Shawlette (Ravelry pattern here) from Giddy Davies. This is a half circle shawl with five lace sections, starting at the center of the straight edge. Instructions are charted and written out. The pattern is designed to use about 350 yards of fingering weight yarn but you can extend this by adding repeats of the last chart. Pattern is about $5.60 on Ravelry, depending on the UK exchange rate.
Yarn – Fiber Optics Yarns Foot Notes Paintbox Gradient. Foot Notes is a fingering weight blend of 80% merino and 20% nylon. One paintbox is 4.25 ounces and 450 yards. It is actually made up of 15 mini skeins of 30 yards each in a very gradual color shift from red to black. The colorway for this is Onxy to Crimson. I used 437 yards with the modifications (essentially adding two repeats of the last chart).
