Seraphina’s Shawl

  I was able to buy a couple cakes of yarn that had been on my wish list to try a couple moths ago.  The yarn is My Melodyy Wolltraum, and it a lovely gradient yarn that is 50% cotton and 50% acrylic. They have so many lovely gradients, and it make for great light weight shawls! Here is the link if you’d like to check them out! Note I’m not being paid to share, but as I really enjoyed using it I thought you may like to check it out. 🙂

One of the cakes I got was Happy X-mas, I wanted to have a Christmassy shawl and was hoping to have it done in time to wear but it didn’t quite work out that way. First I had to find a pattern that I liked and as I hadn’t gotten  very big cakes, I was a bit limited in my choices. I finally found a pattern that I liked on a link that lead me to here,

The repeat is super easy once you’ve set up the first repeat, and I really enjoyed watching the color gradually change. Unlike some of the recently popular color change yarns this one was much more gradual. I picked the 4pl and it was like 4 threads, and every so often a single thread would be knotted to a new color. The tiny knots or TKs were very exciting! They also blended in very well, there was a few I needed to trim, but is was very effortless way to have the look that I wanted my shawl to have.
