Loopy Academy Extra Credit

This semester, Sheri offered the chance to do an extra credit project.  We were to do a project that reminded us of spring - either the color or the pattern or something that reminds us of spring.  I chose the shawl Ondine, worked in Malabrigo Mechita in Natural and English Rose.  I’ve never used this yarn before, but I like it.  It’s fatter than Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light (also a super wash Merino singles yarn), but it’s also bouncier than most singles yarns.  As I knit it, it feels more like a plied yarn than a singles with the bounce.  I’m starting with the Natural (obviously) and it will be the lace at the lower edge as well, with stripes and the lower section in English Rose.

My springtime inspiration?  The colors remind me of my Magnolia blossoms and roses (Knockout, not English).  The roses started blooming right after I got home from the hospital and the magnolias started blooming over this past weekend as I cast on for this project.  I would have shown you photos of the flowers, but it’s raining here.  Hopefully I can get pictures later when it stops (and I’m not wearing pajamas).
