Notes on Project

This shawl started life as a gradient, one of my first attempts at dyeing. I wasn’t happy with the transition so I decided to see if I could get a solid, very saturated purple. I nailed it! The purple is such a beautiful Tanzanite color and the beadwork just adds to the sparkle making this plain jane yarn into a beauty. This was my second attempt at this shawl, first time finishing it without frogging and starting a new pattern. While I’m pleased with the final piece, I’m not sure I’ll do this pattern again. I just like a more intricate style to the beginning and starting with a mesh just doesn’t do it for me.
