Nymphalidea #2


Brenda purchased yarn in Las Vegas for two Nymphalidea shawls, so I began the second shawl as soon as I finished the first one.  I was a little put off by the variegated yarn when I started, but since its a self-striping yarn, I decided to let it do its thing before asking Brenda if she wanted me to continue. When the other colors appeared, I was pleased with the look and continued knitting.

Yarn: 
Heritage Prints (Cascade Yarns) color #5 - (75% superwash merino, 25% nylon)
Baah! LaJolla - Garnet (100% superwash merino)





I pinned the shawl on the wall to show its true shape. 

I like knitting the pattern so much that I've selected some yarn from my stash to knit one for myself.

  5. This one is even more beautiful than the first one! Stretched out it looks like a hawk's wings in flight.

  8. Just as pretty as the first one and the color change is subtle, but not too subtle.
