Freeing My Fade

The knit-along I chose for the shop this month is Free Your Fade by Andrea Mowry. We had a Trunk Show in June with Helena from Oink Pigments – an independent dyeing company. So I carefully chose my three skeins and of course one of them was blue. Typical. I used Oink Sock in Zoot Soot Riot, Teal Appeal, and Spring Forward (which has yellow in it – really outside my comfort zone but I love it)!

This pattern is really simple and easy to follow – it consists of garter stitch, eyelets, slipped stitch edges, and a picot bind off. I love finding patterns that are good for knitters who want to tackle new projects, and this is a great first shawl pattern. You can see my ravelry project here. It’s currently on the blocking mats! Below are some in-progress photos, and stay tuned for the finished project photos!
