Ginkgo Crescent 银杏月亮


My cute puggy stitch marker

Project:  Ginkgo Crescent 银杏月亮
Pattern Ginkgo Crescent by Jade Keaney
Yarn:  Knitpicks Color Your Own, hand dyed by my friend Jocelyn 
Yardage:  440 yards
Needles: Size 7
Cast onApril 17, 2013
Notes: There is a story about the yarn. It went something like this: there were a few skeins of pink cashmere/merino yarn on sale at Newton's Yarn Country at Stitches West. I cannot pass up sale yarn, especially when it's nice cashmere/merino. The yarn became Muir, and because it's pink, it found its way to Jocelyn, who loves everything pink. Jocelyn liked the shawl and said "you can have whatever yarn you want from my stash." You'd know the significance of that statement only if you know the size of her stash, which, let's just say, a few times bigger than mine. This hand dyed yarn is one of the skeins came home with me from my visit.

Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, and leave me a comment!

What fun! I know a few friends whose stash I would like to shop. LOL. Love the chevron look it has going.

Love that pug stitch marker, and everything is (mostly) round on it so it hopefully won't get stuck in your stitches.

And it is a variegated shawl kind of day. :)

Swaps are the most fun things, aren't they?
Love the stitch markers!! (At first, I thought that they were meant to stay there, silly non-knitter that I am!)
Yeesh!
