Dreamy Shawl

Some time back, a lovely customer named Jana inquired about the possibility of some purple and blue yarn she had envisioned. At the time I had nothing in my shop that quite fit the dream she had in her mind. It happened though that I had a new colorway set aside, waiting for a planned batch update in the future. I sent a picture of the yarn to Jana to see if it might fit her vision and sure enough the yarn was close to the dream color she had imagined. I named the colorway "Jana's Dream" and you can see it here in Merino/Cashmere/Nylon Sock Yarn, which is the base yarn Jana chose. (I need to replenish the current stock in the MCN base yarn, but I do currently have the color available in Tight Twist Superwash Merino Sock Yarn and Sportweight Superwash Merino Yarn.)

Jana has now turned the yarn into this dreamy shawl:

The pattern is Skuld by Anna Dalvi. Apparently the pattern is interesting to everyone ...

Lovely, isn't it? Here's a blocking shot where you can see the detail really well.

Thank you to Jana for sharing her work and lending her name to this yarn :) You can see lots more of Jana's work on Ravelry where she is JanaA.
