Another Traveling Shawl

Last week, after coming back from Berlin, I finished this little shawl.  It was my travel project and was supposed to last me another month! I guess I’ve been traveling too much.

The pattern is from Joji Locatelli, called “Imagine When”.  It uses ~150g of fingering weight yarn.  I used a skein of Wollmeise in color Digitessa.  It weighs 154g and I had 6g leftover.  Just enough!

I knit this as part of the Yarniacs Colors of Fall KAL and as part of that KAL you had to “style” your project.  Well, it’s just too hot right now to even think about wearing wool around your neck.  So I put some clothes together on a hanger and that would have to do.

This color is so specific I think I can only wear it with black or grey or brown.  I really like the fact that it is reversible and I don’t have to think about right or wrong sides, and it was very simple to make.  And of course the Wollmeise yarn is fabulous.  Looking for a good travel project? Pick this one!

Speaking of the hot weather, here’s a photo I took this morning when I went out for a run.  I managed to run for 1k and walked another 4.6k.  It was just too muggy and warm.

    It looks like the shawl has speed in it! The colour is gorgeous. I hope that you will wear it all winter!

      I definitely will wear it! I’m getting quite a collection of shawls, which means I should change my wardrobe – more clothes that go with shawls instead of shawls that go with my clothes.
