This is the beginning of my Feather and Fan Shawl from A Gathering of Lace. This is Koigu KPPPM and the colors are exactly what you'd find in a basket of blueberries! It took over a dozen tries to get the 8 little stitches cast on with double pointed needles but once that was figured out it was an easy knit - I'm into my second ball of yarn already and I just started it yesterday. Didn't do much else on the 4th of July but work on it. I have to find someone that sells this yarn in this color - I only have 2 skeins. I have 10 skeins of Koigu in colors all related to this one that I bought to make the Alligator shawl but that was so boring I tore it out. Thought I might try the Feather and Fan shawl with the graduated colors but after working with this blue(berry) I think I want to do it all in this colorway. It's so pretty!
