I just finished a beautiful shawl called Osmanthus that is so delicate and pretty — and the color of rose petals. Knit in Grinning Gargoyle’s MCS Fingering, color Petals (70% Wool – Merino, 20% Silk, 10% Goat – Cashmere goat), it is very soft and luxurious. The color is almost solid with a slight peachy cast, and periodic flecks of darker pink. Grinning Gargoyle brings her stunning yarns to Yarnover every year and we make a DASH for her booth! The colors are spectacular. I have used her yarn often in the past.
There are pink seed beads through the lower half or so. Here it is blocking:
It is really huge, and took about 825 yards! I hope it’s not too big!! 😉
I think it will be a really nice shawl to wear in the spring and in summer with air conditioning. It screams summer wedding to be honest! I will for sure take it with me to Washington, DC when I go in May to visit Surly and attend the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival!!
