Mellow Yellow

It is most definitely crunch time for me with 10 days to go before I leave for Scotland!
Obviously I'm very excited to see family but I also have a LOT of knitting to get done before the photoshoot of my booklet/collection.........so just to show I've actually been knitting here is a sneak peak of one of the shawls that will be in it!

The yarn is Madelinetosh Prairie, 100% superwash merino, laceweight. My hand and eye were instantly drawn to it's mellow mood and luscious texture and it's been a calming and soothing project to work on over these recently hot and sticky days.


Plenty more to come I assure you ...........

Wow, I just love it! Very delicate but not overly feminine. I am just about finished with your Aestlight in some Shilasdair of Skye yarn... great, great pattern! If you are in Edinburgh while you're in Scotland, come visit me, Jo and Kath at K1 Yarns!

Gorgeous, Gudrun. Your shawls are always the perfect blend of details and accessibility (meaning, I'd feel comfortable wearing them and not feel like a doiley ;) ). Can't wait to see the other beauties in your collection.

I LOVE it and want one right now! Quite excited about the upcoming publication of your booklet. :) Good luck getting everything done before you leave!

beautiful Gudrun and so delicate - I love merino but have never seen it look so fine! We are so lucky in NZ as merino is used so widely here and much needed at this time of year! x
