Garden Leaf Shawlette

This was a fun project; easy; and adaptable to any yarn.  I used my own handspun of 50/50 Merino, Silk. Spun in worsted @ 10 wpi; knitting up in stockinette @ 5 spi on a size 9 needle.

The pattern is a Tracey Withanee Design from Ravelry as a free download.

My yarn worked up nicely, although  I think that if I had spun the wool a bit finer it would have made a less bulky shawl.

My camera doesn't do the color justice. It's more like the second picture but not as yellow.  Someday I'll figure out lighting and camera settings.  But for now this is about my yarn.

This was a fun fleece to spin and it came out pretty even.
