Sneak Peeks – Progress (Part 1)

For our next sneak peek, a little closer look at the first couple of shawls!

These will be the first shawls released from the collection, on the actual launch day. You’ll be able to see full images of the shawls when the full announcement is made and pre-orders open.

Both use Skein Top Draw Socks. I have to say I love this yarn. It has beautiful drape and is incredibly soft. It also blocks like a dream and is perfect for the lace I’ve used it for. As a note, Skein tends to change up their colour ways every year and both the shades shown above are from older collections. The currently available shades can be found here; if you’re looking for a close match colour-wise, ‘Barley’ works as a substitute for ‘Sandstorm’ and ‘Rustic’ for ‘Equinox’.

These two have since been knitted up into these. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen these images.

As you’ve probably spotted, the one on the right has beads too – these are the antique copper ones I showed in an earlier sneak peek!

There is another sneak peek on progress coming up next!
