My first 2 "Bloom" shawls were done in Noro Blossom, both of them in color #5 (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE...but then...if you know me, you know that!)The first one I gave to my mom for her birthday because she fell in love with it, and I promptly knit up another one for me! But, Blossom #5 has very bright, spring-like colors, and I wanted to do something for fall.
I also wanted to play around with other yarns and see what kind of results I would get.
So here is another shawl, this one done in Noro Silk Garden (color #204 in case you 'need' to have it!)This shawl turned out to be just a bit smaller than the one done in Blossom, but not so much as to be too small. Just right. I decided to add fringe to this one instead of the crocheted edge...once again to show some options. I will hang this in the shop with my other one to show the different looks you can achieve by using different yarns or finishing touches. This one took 3 skeins for the shawl and almost another full one for the fringe...so 4 total if you want the fringe.
I would also like to try one in Trendsetter Dune for a little glitz.
