FO Friday 47


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!

  9. Stunning!

    You will look as beautiful, but hopefully not as beautiful, as that would be uncool, as the bride!

    Lucky you that you have such an awesome friend that will knit that for you.

  14. Gorgeous! The yarn is perfect for that shawl and will look great with a little black dress, for sure! I think you've done really well to match it to your logo. Don't forget to carry business cards with you whenever you wear it!

    I'm doing an Aeolian now too, but it's using the shortened edging.

  20. What an amazing thing to get in the mail! (And how sweet of Robin to make it for you, too.) I really like the way the colour (gorgeous, and perfect for a beach wedding) works with the shawl pattern, the lace shows up beautifully. I hope you have a wonderful time wearing it. :D

  25. That's on my list to do. Hmm, I planned to do Oscilloscope, but maybe I will do the Aeolian instead! It's lovely! Wish I could feel it through the screen. But wait, I could order yarn and touch it instead!!!
