I have been dreaming about knitting Jody’s Modern Shawl since I saw her wearing it while she was working at Avenue Yarns. It’s simple but elegant with a lovely lattice edging. I was possessed to use yarn from my stash and not go shopping….well I did both. In my stash were two skeins of Silky and Plied from Knitted Wit (225 yds each) which I am sure I bought more than four years ago. What to add for that third skein? There was nothing in my enormous stash that was a satisfactory complement to the lavendar and rose pink skeins. Off to Avenue Yarns I went….came away with a lovely purple and then decided that I didn’t like it with this project…so back to Avenue Yarns. This time I really loved my choice….Malabrigo Rios color Plomo. This comp0limentary color has subtle gray color changes with just a hint of pink. I am now dreaming of the next project for the purple yarn.

The shawl was finished this past Wednesday and wet blocked on Thursday. I love the results.
