My Wandering Whippoorwill shawl. Here are all of the details:
Pattern: Whippoorwill by Carina Spencer
Yarn: Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in the Honey and Primrose colorways, Hazel Knits yarn club selections for February 2013.
Cast on: July 30, 2013
Bind-off: August 31, 2013
I love these two colors together! Of course, I'm a purple girl, you knew, that, right?  I don't usually wear gold, but I'm trying to branch out a bit in the colors I wear. I knit this shawl for the Hazel Knits July-August knitalong. This was also part of the My Sister's Knitter Get It Done KAL. (Hi, Andi!)

I am also going to use this project for the Yarniacs podcast Colors of Fall KAL. The idea is to knit something in one of the Pantone Fall 2013 fashion forecast colors. The purple in this shawl is very close to Pantone's Acai. One of the requirements of the KAL is to style your photo with the clothing and accessories you would combine with your project to make an outfit, so here are a couple bonus photos:

This has been a fun challenge. I may have two more projects knit in Pantone fall colors that I can share with you. One isn't finished yet, but is getting close, and the other just needs a photograph. Watch for another post coming soon!

  1. I really enjoy Andi's KAL! A lot of people got loads of knits finished! Your shawl is beautiful with its nice curves! Purple and gold are such a nice match!
