Gail’s Nightsongs in Bayou

This beautiful shawl is done in Knit Picks Shimmer hand-dyed lace yarn in the color Bayou. Difficult to tell from my photographs, but the dark olive greens, brown, blues and greens make up a stunning Nightsong lace shawl. Good thing for me I’ve improved in my photo taking.

I made this for a friend in Florida. We spent the afternoon looking through yarn to find the perfect color. I’d say Bayou and Florida work well together. Top that off with a pretty redhead and you know it’s a perfect combination.

Gail’s Nightsongs is an easy pattern once you get past the double yarn overs at the center. I ended up using someone else’s fix by casting on a stitch after the first yarn over to make a tighter center stitch. Thank the stars people post what they do for pattern fixes!
