delusions aplenty

I’d been searching for Madtosh Prairie in Spectrum after I saw this awesome FO.  And of course, no one had any Spectrum in stock.

I finally found some at Webs last Saturday and scooped up a skein as soon as I saw it.

My plan was to cast on Fragile Heart on my birthday as a little gift to myself, but this weekend I realized that I might be able to finish it in time for a wedding on April 26th if I started right away.

The vivid blue with bits of green and purple are so gorgeous.

I cast on yesterday and have the tiniest crescent knit up so far.

You have options with this shawl – garter or stockinette body, number of repeats of the lace transition (including zero) and then the last border with or without beads.   My plan is to do no lace transition and lots of iridescent blue/purple beads on the edging.

I don’t yet have a dress but I’m thinking something simple, sleeveless and in black.

So to sum it up…Wedding in 4 weeks with no dress yet and the tiniest of a crescent of the shawl knitted up.   No problem, right?

I’ll catch you on the purl side.

  1. That’s funny :) I mean, erm, no, no problem at all :))
    Pretty yarn. The FO that you link to really shows off the yarn beautifully. I look forward to seeing how your shawl progresses.
    Good luck! x

  2. I get a kick out of how different each Spectrum can be. Some are more blue, some are more purple. But all of them are pretty!
