Update: All tester found, thank you very much
While the late summer sun was still warming my patio a few days ago, I took the first snapshots of my latest shawl design “Riverrun”. The name is – as you probably guessed – taken from the Game of Thrones series. I think the mosaic edge looks a bit like swirling water and I deliberately chose the wonderful blue-green Malabrigo Mechita yarn in my favorite Malabrigo colorway Teal Feather for an even more water-y appearance.
Mechita is a Fingerring weight yarn, but I wanted a soft, voluminous fabric so I used relatively large needles. I am very happy with the effect the simple seed stitch has on the handdied yarn. Look at all those highlights in the purl bumps!
I combined the Mechita with white DROPS Baby Merino fo a good contrast in the mosaic stripe and to set off the romantic lace edge. And not boasting or anything – I am very pleased about this particular design, I really think, it turned out great.
Riverrun is now up for test knitting please check out my Ravelry Group for further details.
