endless summer // surf & sand

It's Endless Summer shawl time again! The warm summer days are winding down and the mornings are crisp. It is the perfect time to start a new project and finish just in time to wrap your neck up during the cooler months. We hope you enjoy the first shawl of the series: surf & sand.

During my travels, I visit a lot of wonderful yarn shops and like most knitters, I enjoy finding goodies to bring home. I'm loving all the speckles right now and what I love even more is being able to pair those speckles with our neutral tones. The speckled yarn in this project is a fun skein of Walk Collection Linea in the color Seashells that I picked up at the fabulous StevenBe shop in Minneapolis earlier this year. I knew right away that I wanted to pair this interesting linen, alpaca, silk blend with a skein of our Mother yarn in Shiitake. The two textures of each of the yarns compliment each other exceptionally well and I appreciate the matte finish of our base in a subtle warm taupe next to the multi-colored Linea.

This pattern is not for the faint of heart... it features a slipped stitch pattern worked in an interesting method, a biasing triangular shawl construction, selvedge stitches, half twisted stockinette stitch, and a complicated edging that looks like crochet when you are finished. All worth the work, in my opinion, and if you're not into the scallops, just leave them off.

Holy smokes! You are generous and creative! Awesome combo, for which I am most grateful.

I'm thinking of something for a high school grad -- but have never met her and have no clue as to her likes and dislikes. That puts me on Stand Down. Yikes.
