Precipice Shawl by Marnie MacLean

Sample crocheted by the awesome Jeanette.  She used two Plum Lilt Gradients, if you'd like to read her notes here.

Tanglement by Karen Whooley

Again, crafted by Jeanette, who keeps excellent notes.  Using one Pebble Sock Gradient yarn kit in Spice.

Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief, a free pattern on Ravelry, which I knit for myself for fun because I wanted a quick and satisfying knit.  It took me four days, even though I added an additional repeat to make it more of a shawl than a kerchief, and I bound off with a cast on 2/bind off 4 picot edging.  I used some of my Wollmeise stash so I can feel less like a hoarder.

Delft Cladonia, which I'm gifting to my elder son's teacher, also only took me four days to knit.  It required one skein of Luminence, and 1 and a 1/4 skeins of Natural in my own Sublime DK.  I get frequent requests for this yarn to be put up on blacktrilliumfibres.com, but we're so limited by time right now that I haven't gotten it wedged into the dyeing queue yet.  There is an upcoming pattern this fall that I'm very excited about, so I'll have to get some good colors sorted before then.

DK weight shawls are making me pretty happy at the moment, because they're so fast.  I suppose now I better get back to real work, like dyeing or something. Ta!
