Sock Yarn Shawl

Susie and I used to go to a yarn shop called the Point.  
The Point has since closed but the reason we went, aside from the yarn, 
has since moved her expertise to Annie & Co. on Madison and 93rd.  
Her name is Alyssa and if you’re ever in the neighborhood drop by and say “Hi”

On a fairly recent visit I purchase a very colorful skein of sock yarn by 
Cascade called Heritage Silk Paints.  
I never knew Cascade made a merino / silk blend sock yarn.  
The color is very spring; orange, yellow, pinks and a dash of green.  
This very simple shawl is from a recipe type book by Evelyn Clark called Knitting Lace Triangles.   
I used the medallion motif for the main body and ended 
with about 11 rows of the  ripple lace pattern before I ran out of yarn and had to bind off.  
I just got a chance to block it this past weekend. 
I am very happy with how it turned out.

  1. That's very pretty. I have that book and it's a great resource! I wish there was a little more "why" to it, though.
