Palette Shawl

I finished the hand dyed palette shawl!
I am really happy with the way it came out.
My DD has claimed it for a belated birthday present.
It will visit knit group tomorrow, then get mailed off.

Bottom: Knit Picks Felici Pebble and Risata Dusk; Meilenweit Meeting color # 7710;

The new Knit Picks sock yarns are yummy! The Felici is SO SOFT! I was concerned about the elastic content in the Risata, but it is nice also, not overly stretchy like some cotton sock yarns that add elastic. Speaking of Knit Picks, I see they have added some new colors to some of their yarns. Check it out here.

And finally, here are some boring socks that I knit while at work.

How jealous am I that you can knit something that boring at work... Who do I send my Resmue to?

Love the shawl! Your knitting always amazes me.

No socks are boring! The colors are great. I see you've just been blessed with some Koigu. Thanks for the tam idea! I was just looking at tams recently but hadn't thought of the Koigu!!! Your tams are wonderful!!!
