A Taste of Spring

As we head toward winter, I have a couple of projects to share with you that will bring cool Spring evenings to mind. (How can I be longing for Spring already when Winter hasn't even started yet?)

First up is Marjorie's Bee Field Shawl knit with FF Laceweight Merino in the Notorious colorway:

The pattern is by Anne Hanson and includes a variety of bee-themed stitch patterns.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! You can get a taste of more of Marjorie's work on Ravelry where she is primetimeknitter and on her blog.

Next up is Vicki's lovely rendition of the Old Shale Shawl (pattern by Evelyn Clark).

Vicki used FF Lightweight Superwash Merino Wool Yarn in the Chocolate Pink Cherry colorway. Vicki is Redtabby on Ravelry and has plenty more lovely projects posted there for you to peruse and enjoy.

A big Thank You to Marjorie and Vicki for a much-appreciated infusion of springtime goodness on this gray December morning!

Vicki's computer is all set for a cold winter--beautifully tricked out! And "Notorious" was an excellent selection for Marjorie's beautiful "Bee".

Thanks for showing my photo, which really doesn't do the shawl justice. I loved working with the yarn, and it looks wonderful in that design.
