Happy almost weekend! I hope you all have a great time doing whatever you have planned and perfect weather for it. We have a wedding to go to at the beach this weekend. To be honest, I had no clue what I was going to wear. After raiding my sister's closet for a dress and getting a special surprise in the mail, I totally have an awesome outfit! Want to see the surprise?
It's a gorgeous Aeolian shawl in Candy Skein Delicious lace yarn in the Candy Skein colorway. It's a colorway I specifically dyed for this shawl, and haven't made another skein in this colorway after. I wanted it to match my Candy Skein logo, and I think it got pretty close!
I'm so very lucky to know and call a friend a very talented lady named Robin. She's in my Monday night knitting group and offered to make me a sample shawl for when I do marketplaces/conventions/craft shows. How could I say no!? Isn't it AMAZING!!?? I can't help but pet it (even my cat, Roxy couldn't not pet it!) and it's sooo soft and light. The drape is amazing. I have crazy sensitive skin, and I was wearing it over a tank top around the house last night and I didn't have any issues whatsoever. I plan to take pictures of me with it on and the little black dress I'm going to wear it with on Saturday!
That's it for me for FO Friday. Unfortunately, I don't have anything to share that I've actually knit. I hope you don't mind me sharing Robin's beautiful work, but I couldn't help but brag at my new addition to my wardrobe.
Share you FOs!
