Like I said, last week was a big week for me and today I'd like to talk about the inspiration behind the third and final design released last week, Ferrous.
So my first thought went it came to motifs for the lace was wrought iron fencing (hence ferrous= iron).
The yarn is Quince's brand new 100% wool fingering weight yarn, Finch, in kumlien's gull, one of the limited edition winter heathers. When Pam asked me if I wanted to work in a yet-to-be released yarn, in a yet-to-be-released colorway, I was super excited and Finch is springy, cozy and lovely to knit with.
The shawl uses two skeins of the Finch, but if you wanted a larger shawl, you could continue out the lines until the desired length then complete the arrowhead patterns.
