I do actually have a recent FO I want to share with you! This past weekend I was at a knitters’ retreat and I finished my Hudson shawl.
I started this back in November as part of the indie designer gift-along and wrapped it up during the knitting olympics (how’s that for double dipping?)
I love it. I’m not usually one for simple projects. But I needed the meditative qualities of stockinette. The simple stripe pattern meant I could go stash diving for all the colors. And as an added bonus I used a couple of things from the deep stash.
The main color is a dusty rose peace fleece that I’ve had around since 2014 when I bought it for a baby sweater. Clearly 2 skeins would not cover the child who is now 4 years. So a shawl is a good use. The tan is leftover harrisville wool & flax which I picked up at a yarn swap somewhere around 7 years ago. The brown in the border? Bartlett wool that I bought online at least a decade ago. Yup. That’s some deep stash diving.
