Be With You Shawl

I started with these fibres (some I dyed). There is BFL Wool, Silk, Baby Alpaca, and Angora. I bought the fibre at Fibre Detours (a Canadian online store) - Samantha, the owner, is so lovely and helpful.

I blended the fibres on a blending board and created rolags ready for spinning.

Spun into these two skeins - averages to fingering weight yarn.

Knitted into this shawl. The pattern is 'Be With You' by Boo Knits. More details can be found on my Ravelry project page. Like all Boo patterns, this was a joy to knit. I thought the edging was the hardest part (over 800 stitches for 11 rows, in a modified ribbing!), but I am really pleased with the results.

The edging created a ruffle type edge.

The shawl is 200cm /79" long and 33cm/13" at the widest point.

 Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
