Show and tell: shawls.

We always love to see what you’re making with HYS yarns, and I love to take photos of your beautiful finished pieces to share here on the blog. I’ve collected a nice bunch of them over the past couple of months, enough for two blog posts. Let’s begin with shawls.


Amy knit this exquisite garment for her daughter’s wedding, a delicate lace shawl in the Estonian tradition. The pattern is “Lilac Leaf Shawl,” by Nancy Bush, and the yarn is Shibui Cima, a lace weight blend of merino and alpaca.


Here Pat models her “Dhania Shawl,” a pattern from the Spring 2014 issue of Interweave Knits, which she knit using Louisa Harding Mulberry. The allover texture pattern is studded with eyelets, making a lightweight fabric that’s especially drapey in 100% silk.


Here’s Kathy in her cozy “Range Wrap,” knit in Ella Rae Classic Wool, and fastened with Jul closures.


Thanks for the show and tell, everyone! Keep your eye on the blog for even more finished projects soon.
