Free Your Fade

Since I finished the other “fade” type shawl, I’ve been plotting a second one.   I decided I’ll use the Free Your Fade pattern which can be found on Ravelry.  Another long skinny type shawl.

This one will be in fingering weight yarn and I’ll be using these Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock yarns.

I have wanted to make something with the Beach Glass (third one from left) ever since I saw that color combination in one hank.   From left to right they are Falcons Eye, Bubble Guppies, Beach Glass and Funfetti.   Clearly the spring-like colors call to me on this gray day when it has been raining and dark all day long (which probably means icy sidewalks tomorrow since the temps are dropping).  I can’t wait to get started on this but I need to get busy on my Toph hat first.

The hat is my first Great Loopy Knitting Challenge project so I’m making myself finish that first before I start on this second Knitting Challenge project — really I am.   Have I mentioned how much I like the project planner pages at TLE website – it makes it so much easier to plan projects, especially fades, if you can line the yarns up all next to each other to get a good look.

Must work on hat……..
