This week I cast on for the second shawl in the “Airs Above The Ground” series. This one is a half-circle with a notch for the neck, like Broken. I’m using the Styx skein from A Hundred Ravens:
The skein is dip-dyed in bright pink and a rich purpley black, so naturally it will pool and flash and stripe as the stitch count varies. This is always a concern with using hand-dyed yarn that has a strong color difference … but in this case the pattern is working up well. I’m using a simple and bold lace pattern, so that it doesn’t fight with the yarn — so far so good!
