I had snagged it while at vogue knitting live back in march. Actually a group of us decided that we would do a mini knit along! The sample that was knitted with this yarn at the neighborhood fiber co.'s booth was actually Joji Locatelli's Imagine When Shawl. As soon as I had tried it on, I knew I wanted this shawl, in this yarn.
Our knit along was very simple. We just needed to cast on at the same time, and there were no deadlines. This was something I knew I could commit to! I really do love the result of my new shawl! And the colour! gah! It's really just so stunning!
And so back in March, I cast on and just plugged away at this shawl whenever I had the chance. I truly enjoyed knitting it.
Here are my deets:
pattern: Imagine When Shawl by Joji Locatelli
yarn: Neighborhood Fiber Co. Capital Luxury Lace. Color: Georgetown. seriously luxe yarn!
needle: signatures 3.5mm / US 4
My version is a bit smaller, though I made no changes to the pattern, other than use a smaller needle. Looking back, I think a larger needle would have been good... but what can you do. :)
This yarn blocks out beautifully, and the shawl has incredible drape. I really am in love with it!
This now officially means that I have nothing on the needles for me. what the what?! Besides my work knitting, I have a couple of gift knitting projects on the needles that I can soon share with you! I have been a busy little knitting bee... and loving it!
Wishing you a happy first day of July! What are your plans for the day? Are you celebrating the holiday too? What's on your needles today? xo
