Bonbon Shawlette

This is a quickie post about my Bonbon Shawlette that I test knit for Isabelle of Fluffy Fibers, one of my very favorite podcasts.  Here is my Ravelry project page.

 The yarn is from Lancaster Yarn Shop in Intercourse, Pennsylvania.  It is their hand-dyed Lumen in the Rare Earth color
This was a really fun little knit.  I expected it to be a pretty mindless, relaxing knitting, but I actually had to pay attention in the textured stitch section, because I had a tendency to accidentally knit 2 together with the slipped stitches.  I also wasn't sure how I'd wear this triangular shaped shawl, but it is pretty long and narrow and isn't much different from a big scarf.

 I'm also wearing my recently made Simplicity 2226 skirt.

I have another shawl planned (French Cancan in Voolenvine's Dirty on Purpose) and am dying to cast it on, but I want to get some more progress on current works-in-progress first!  Now that fall is really just around the corner, I want to start knitting all the things!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It is wonderful to know someone is reading. :-)
