The Winter Butterfly
I started knitting a shawlette last night. The pattern I am using is The Monarch Shawl by Denise @ Lost City Knits. The yarn is Blind Buck Farm's yarn Fall. I bought one skein of this DK weight yarn at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival 2011 in Rhinebeck. I am through one of the three sections of the pattern and about half way through the second. It is a fast knit. I love the feel of the yarn which is 30% Mohair and 70% Romney Wool and is dense.
Better photos will be coming soon once the shawl is finished and blocked.
