FO 5, 6, & 7 – A couple of shawls

It’s the middle of April and we’re STILL having 30 degree days!
I just want to wear jeans already!
And these two shawls that have been finished and blocked for ages now but can’t bear to wear them yet.

So no awkward modelling, but you can admire them from afar.

The green one is Multnomah made from Invictus Yarns Determination which was a dream to knit with. Except that it was previously had frogged yarn, but that’s not the yarns fault.

The purple one is Terribly Simple made from my own hand dyed yarn! I added a simple cable down the centre to add a bit of something special to it.
I’m so impressed with my dyeing job.
Totally love both of them and can’t wait for it to be cool enough for me to wear them. Obviously I’m more in love with my hand-dye because I could only find one photo of the multnomah.

(What the last pattern is is a mystery to me, but it’s yarn from Yarn vs Zombies Doctor Who yarn club so I must have finished it this year. I just don’t remember when. Maybe some yarn fairies came in and made it for me in my sleep.)

    “It’s the middle of April and we’re STILL having 30 degree days!”

    It’s scary that I can say this too, probably in the same tone of voice, only in Fahrenheit and for the opposite reason. There is still SNOW outside my window! [Hmph.]

    I really like your hand dyed yarn (my favorite yarn colors!) and those are lovely shawls.
